# Gasoline Consumption Calculator

It is common for drivers to plan ahead on gasoline consumption, travel
time, and total cost before driving to a certain destination. One of the
anticipated estimations is how much gas it would take to make it to the
desired destination, full tank is always the best option but what if you
don't need that much or you needed more. This
*Gasoline Consumption Calculator* will help you plan your trip
ahead.

## How to Use the Gasoline Consumption Calculator

If you ever wonder about where to find the
*Average Gas Intake* or just the average fuel consumption, this
measurement is available on your car dashboard gauges. Which includes
speedometer, RPM, oil pressure and other stuff.

I own a Kia Picanto (manual transmission), a city car, which I am just consuming about 5L/100kms on long drives and about 8L/100kms on city drive because of traffic and slowing down every now and then.

Some cars have different consumption, other perhaps go above 10L/100kms so it really depends on the car and the weight. Considering you are running on the same destination, with the same car but one has 4 passengers and the other is only 1, it is obvious that fuel consumption on the latter is less than the former.

Here's how to use this Gasoline Consumption Calculator:

- Step 1
Enter the

*Average Gas Intake*or fuel consumption. It is available on your car dashboard. - Step 2
Enter the

*Distance*of your travel. This could just be an estimate or what is being shown in a map. For example, to get to the next city, you need to travel 80 kilometers. Enter that number on this field. - Step 3
Add a

*Gasoline Price*or fuel price. Now, the unit (USD, PHP ...) is just optional and it can be left as is. Because it is just a unit and there's no conversion there. This is just to personalize your calculation but it is not needed on actual calculation. - Step 4
Click on the

*Calculate*button. The calculations will be displayed at the bottom of it. This includes the*Gas Consumption*,*Total Gas Consumption*and*Total Gas Price*.

Whenever you want to change values on the calculator, make sure to always
click the *Calculate* button after for it to derive another result
for you. You might want to also check out
Drive Time Calculator.

You can check out Google Maps to reassess your routes and total travel
distance. Then you can go back to this
*Gasoline Consumption Calculator* and change your distance values.
