Calculate fuel used over certain distance?

Postby Infinitrium » Tue Jun 19, 2007 11:26 am

So I'm driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to calculate how much fuel a car will use over a certain distance when the distance and particular fuel consumption are already known. What I am trying to do is to figure how much fuel a car getting 27 mpg will burn for 100 miles. Can anyone help? If someone knows how to calculate that, please post it here so I can memorize it for future use.

100 miles x 1 gallon/27 miles = 3.7 gallons
