With the fluctuating and increasing petrol and diesel prices, everyone takes fuel consumption as the major consideration while purchasing a new vehicle. If one chooses most fuel-efficient vehicle, driving in a fuel-efficient way, and using the vehicle when essentially required then one can save big bucks in fuel and money. Fuel efficiency, fuel economy and fuel consumption are interrelated concepts. Fuel efficiency is actually a form of thermal efficiency that converts chemical potential energy contained in a carrier fuel into kinetic energy. Vehicles’ fuel efficiency can be expressed as fuel consumption and fuel economy. Fuel economy is the distance traveled per unit volume of fuel used while fuel consumption is the amount of fuel used by a vehicle per unit distance and it is reciprocal of fuel economy i.e., the more fuel a vehicle consumes, the less efficient it is.

Generally, fuel consumption is expressed as miles per gallon (MPG) but now-a-days it is also expressed in litres per 100km (L/100km). If one desires to calculate litres per 100 kilometres (L/100km), then it is required to first calculate the Kilometers per Litre (km/L) and then divide 100 by the value obtained by km/Litre.

Conversions of units:
miles per US gallon ? L/100 km: 235 / mpgUS = L/100 km
miles per Imp. gallon ? L/100 km: 282 / mpgImp. = L/100 km
L/100 km ? miles per US gallon: 235 / (L/100 km) = mpgUS
L/100 km ? miles per Imp. gallon: 282 / (L/100 km) = mpgImp.
