# Calculating Fuel Economy - Number of Kilometres from One Dollar How many kilometres will you get for a dollar (can be substituted with any currency) spent on fuel? As in, one dollar, how far will that get me with my vehicle?

Calculates the distance you can travel by car on a per-dollar basis.

You will need to know the average litres per 100 kilometres of fuel consumption of your car.

The formula used,
`average km/L ÷ \$perL = km per dollar`
##### Example
```Your average fuel consumption is 8.9 L/100km.
The price of one litre of fuel is 1.95.
You spend \$60 on fuel.```

`First, work out how far a litre gets you;`
`100 ÷ 8.9 = 11.2359`
`One litre gets you 11.2359 kilometres of distance travelled.`

`11.2359 ÷ 1.95 = 5.762`
`With one dollar, you can travel a distance of 5.762 kilometres`

`Multiplying the distance per dollar with the amount spent on fuel;`
`5.762 * 60 = 345.72`

### Fuel Ecomomy; Amount of Kilometres per Dollar Spent

Average Litres/100 Kilometres L/100KM
Price per Litre of Fuel \$/L
Money Amount Spent on Fuel \$

#### Results:

 One Dollar = kilometres Your Dollar Amount = kilometres

#### Calculation

1. enter the average litres per 100 kilometres
2. cost of one litre of fuel
3. amount spend on fuel

#### Result

1. the number of kilometres for one dollar
2. the number of kilometres based on your dollar amount
