To calculate the gas mileage, you must first determine the distance traveled on a gallon of gas. Divide 1000 miles by 50 gallons of gas. That equals twenty; so, you traveled twenty miles on a gallon of gas. Your gas mileage would be 20 miles per gallon (miles per gallon).
In that case, how many miles can you go on 7 gallons of gas?
According to the EPA post, new vehicle fuel economy is at a record high. The average gas mileage of cars sold in 2014 is 24.1 miles per gallon. With 7.5 gallons, the average automobile can go around 181 miles.
Additionally, one may inquire how much gasoline is contained in a gallon. While the national average for a gallon of gas is approximately $2.18, individual states perform better or worse. For instance, vehicles in Hawaii “consistently pay the highest gasoline prices.” At the moment, they pay an average of $3.31.
Additionally, how do you compute the cost of gasoline per mile?
Divide the total distance of your trip by your miles per gallon to determine the number of gallons of gas you will require. Then multiply that figure by the current gas price to determine the total cost of your road trip.
How far will five gallons of gasoline take you?
How many miles can you drive on five gallons of gas? If your vehicle achieves 7 miles per gallon, you can travel around 35 miles. If your vehicle achieves 30 miles per gallon, you may travel around 150 miles.
