Fuel Economy Question

Postby ScatNat » Mon May 28, 2007 8:54 am

If i have a 1.5 litre engine and travel 31.4km to work - how much petrol am i using?

The time it takes is approximately 1 hour - due to heavy traffic.

Please help, its needed for a Tafe assignment.

Cheers

seems to me like you will need to research to see what the average amount of fuel a 1.5L car uses per 100km then proceed to do the problem

First fill your tank,drive 50 miles,fill tank again and get the mpg. Your driving in HEAVY trafic which means a lot of idyling and that means mpg loss. Weather also affects mpg-dry means fairly good mpg-rainy it gets better due to the density of the air,gas mix. Then again if you drive at 60 instead of 30 your gas loss is doubled. A well waxed and clean body on a car also means improved mpg. Keep ties inflated to correct pressure.
