Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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.
