# How do you calculate miles per Litre?

## How do you calculate miles per Litre?

Or, to work it out yourself:

1. Fill your tank to the top.
2. Zero the trip counter.
3. When you next fill up, note the mileage driven.
4. Fill the tank again and note the number of litres put in.
5. Divide the number of miles driven by the amount of fuel used in litres (miles per litre)

## How far can a car travel on 1 Litre of petrol?

it depends on the car, speed, engine size… an economy car can give you an average of 13 kilometers per liter taking some considerations: a fixed speed of something like 60 kilometers an hour.

## How much does it cost to fill a 1 Litre car?

The average price of a litre of fuel in the UK is now around £1.24 for petrol and £1.30 for diesel.

## How far will 4 Litres of diesel get me?

In an average diesel car you will realistically get at least 50–70 miles per gallon. A gallon is about 4.5 litres so you should get about 12–14 miles.

## How many kms left when fuel light comes on?

There are a number of online services that collect information from drivers that have been left high and dry and offer it to motorists to help them avoid the situation. Trawling these figures and averaging out the top nine most popular entries reveals a general average figure of about 67 kilometres.

## At what speed should the car be driven to travel the greatest distance with 1 Litre of fuel?

The Energy Saving Trust says that the most efficient speed you can travel in a car in terms of achieving the best fuel economy is 55-65mph. Any faster, though, and the fuel efficiency decreases rapidly. For example, driving at 85mph uses 40% more fuel than at 70mph (oh, and it’s illegal too).

## What RPM should a car be driven at?

For the best fuel efficiency, keep your RPMs between 1,500 and 2,000 RPM when driving at a constant speed.

## Is it OK to drive in 4th gear?

Did you look at the manual? Page 82 states that “Driving excessively in 4th gear will lead to a known but unpreventable condition called SMEF or Spontaneous Massive Existance Failure whereas your car will be taken from you and given to someone who knows how to drive stick.” Just messin’ with ya, you’re fine.

## Should the rpm be at 0 in idle?

The engine will operate at idle and the rpm will indicate between 800 and 1000 rpm. When you switch the engine off the rev counter will indicate 0 rpm. For a zero reading your engine must not be running. Most engines idle at between 600 to 900 RPM.

## What should the RPMs be at idle?

For a passenger car engine, idle speed is customarily between 600 and 1000 rpm. For medium and heavy duty trucks, it is approximately 600 rpm. For many single-cylinder motorcycle engines, idle speed is set between 1200 and 1500 rpm.

## Why is my rpm at 0 while driving?

Rpm @ 0 means the engine is not running.

## When I turn on my car the rpm goes up?

Common causes of high RPM excursion at start-up are typically: large vacuum leak, throttle plate stuck open, cruise control stepper motor stuck in one position; faulty throttle position sensor, and/or faulty idle air control motor or solenoid.

## Is 1500 rpm idle bad?

This is a perfectly normal occurrence. It is simply something your car needs to do so that it can start properly. You should not be concerned if your car jumps up to 1500 RPM and then shortly afterward goes back down to a normal 800 RPM.
