How to calculate mileage of your car?
E-mail

The most accurate way to calculate a car's mileage is to use the Full-To-Full technique which involves three simple steps.
  1. Fuel your car to a tank full* and note the corresponding odometer reading.
  2. Drive around for a certain distance or trip over which you need to calculate the fuel consumption.
  3. Fuel your car again to a tank full* and note the corresponding odometer reading.
  4. The difference in the odometer readings of step 1 and 3 gives you the distance covered and the amount of fuel required to do a tank full in step 3 given the consumption for the trip.
  5. A simple division gives you the fuel consumption or mileage of your car.
* while fueling your car, request for an auto cut-off of the fuelling during both the tank full exercises to minimise human error in topping the fuel tank.
