How to Calculate Your Gas Mileage

Now that you have the answer to, “How many gallons of gas can my car hold?” Let’s determine how many miles per gallon you get on Tulare and Delano roads. Calculate your average gas mileage by following these steps below:

  1. Determine your vehicle’s fuel tank capacity, as discussed above.
  2. Fill your vehicle’s gas tank until it is completely full. Take note of the number of gallons you purchased—it is usually displayed somewhere on the gas pump screen. You can also divide the total amount you paid by the price per gallon. This number should be close to the fuel tank capacity listed in your owner’s manual.
  3. As soon as you fill your tank, set your trip odometer before you start driving again. You can usually find the button near the speedometer or RPM gauge.
  4. Proceed to drive as you would normally. Once your gas light comes on, take note of the number of miles displayed on your odometer.
  5. Divide the total number of miles you drove since filling your tank by the total number of gallons of gas you purchased at the pump. The result is your vehicle’s average mpg.
