## How to convert mpg to gallons per mile?

Once you have it displayed, you can change the mileage displayed in the data panel from the oh-so-familiar window-sticker mpg to g/100m. You can also simply enter the conversion into the Google search engine as “mpg to gallons per 100 miles” and their calculator does the math for you. But why, exactly, should consumers care?

**Is it better to go from 18 to 50 miles per gallon?**

Management professors Richard Larick and Jack Soll’s experiments proved that consumers thought fuel consumption was cut at an even rate as mileage increased. Most survey respondents said going from 34 to 50 mpg saved more gasoline over 10,000 miles than did moving from 18 to 28 mpg. Their website, ” The MPG Illusion ,” lays out the whole issue.

**Which is better 10 mpg or 20 mpg?**

If you’re like most Americans, you picked the second one. But, in fact, that’s exactly backwards. Over any given mileage, replacing a 10-mpg vehicle with one that gets 20 mpg saves five times the gasoline that replacing a 33-mpg vehicle with one that gets 50 does.

**Why do we measure fuel consumption by gallons per mile?**

One simple long-division problem and not much concern over where the decimal point goes. Actually, the more intuitive way to measure a car’s fuel usage is to measure the consumptionnot the mileage. That’s right, we need to start measuring fuel economy in gallons per mile.

**How many gallons are in a 33 mpg car?**

So the mathematical problem for the newer better mpg vehicles SHOULD be 33 mpg X 10 divided by 50 mpg = 6.6 gallons. The math you proposed is very misleading and a lie, this is the true math. No dimensional analysis shows you are off. mpg/mpg doesn’t give gallons.
