This MPG calculator converts car fuel consumption measures such as the US mile per gallon, UK mile per imperial gallon and EU liters. Read more on the conversions used and check some example calculations below the form.

## How does this MPG calculator work?

This is a useful tool when you need to convert the fuel consumption of your car through three different measurement units used in the US, UK and EU. There is one choice and one input of data that you need to make in order for the MPG calculator to make the transformations. First you need to select from the three units: US Miles per Gallon, UK Imperial Miles per Gallon and EU Litres per 100 km, then you need to input the actual fuel consumption value and press Calculate. You will then receive as result a table with the three standards of measurement and their respective units.

## Fuel Economy

This is a measure of the relationship between the fuel consumed and the distance traveled. Consumption can either be expressed as fuel versus distance or distance travelled per unit volume of fuel. There are certain requirements that car manufacturers need to abide by in regard of fuel efficiency and there are various tests to be made. Driver behavior also plays an essential role in lowering or increasing consumption.

## What is the US Mile per Gallon?

The most used abbreviation is US mpg. US mpg is a unit used in the United States for car fuel consumption. The average fuel economy as of 2009 in the US is around 26.4mpg.

## What is the UK Mile per Imperial Gallon?

The most used abbreviation is Imperial mpg. An Imperial mpg is a unit used in the United Kingdom for determining fuel consumption.

## What is the EU Litres per 100 km?

This is a unit used in many European countries for car fuel consumption. Because most European countries use the metric system, it is only natural that the reporting is done in liters and kilometers.
