There are a lot of us older folks here in Canada that still use the Imperial Gallon and miles when we calculate mileage and distance, too.

Interesting calculator, the most interesting part is the fact that a Canadian website would post a calculator to sum a capacity that is no longer in place anywhere in the world. Imperial Gallon, gone the way of the dildo bird.

Thanks
Ron


Isn't it still in use in Canada?
Seems like half a continent is a pretty big chunk of "The World"...


ON EDIT :
Good grief- I really need to get out (of the country) more- I looked at "Canadian car" specs and...is my face red!

Sorry, Ron!

Imperial is a good reference for us none Trudeau types. You have to be an older Canadian to understand.

I still calculate my mileage in imperial gallons. They tell me the metric system is easy....hmmm, old dog, new trick syndrome. I also still measure stuff in inches and pounds, not mm or kms or kgs or....?

Basic calculation of fuel mileage is to divide distance travel (units of distance, miles, kilometers, etc. ) by total fuel used measured in (gallons, liters,etc.) using a basic calculator with give you the simple answer. The most accurate measurement will include several fill ups as a single one will not be as accurate.
