# Calculating Fuel Economy - How Far Will One Dollar Get You How many miles will you get for a dollar 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 your average miles per gallon (MPG) of fuel consumption of your car.

The formula used,
`average MPG ÷ \$PG = MP\$`
```where MPG = miles per gallon.
\$PG = dollar price per gallon of fuel.
MP\$ = miles travelled per dollar.```
##### Example
```Your average miles per gallon is 24.
The price of one gallon of fuel is \$3.84.
You spend \$35 on fuel.```

`24 ÷ 3.84 = 6.25`
`It will cost you one dollar to travel 6.25 miles.`

`Multiplying the distance per dollar with the amount spent on fuel;`
`6.25 * 35 = 218.75`

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

Average Miles per Gallon mi/gal US
Price per Gallon of Fuel \$/gal US
Number of Dollars Spend on Fuel \$

#### Results:

 One Dollar = mi Your Dollar Amount = mi

#### Calculation

1. enter the average miles per gallon
2. cost of one gallon of fuel
3. amount spend on fuel

#### Result

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