We know the simple formula for calculating vehicle mileage: it is given by the ratio of the distance traveled to the amount of fuel burned. But this simple formula does not apply until we have the (appropriate) techniques to measure the distance traveled and the amount of fuel burned. We explain it below.

For distance measurement we have the odometer installed in the vehicle. However, for measuring the amount of fuel burned, there are no meters with a properly graduated scale. There is a so-called fuel gauge that only gives you an idea of ​​how much fuel is left in the tank. We cannot properly measure the amount of fuel burned using this meter.

Of course, in a fuel station we can get a measured amount of fuel. But even if we do, we still don't know how much fuel was already in the tank. Therefore, we do not know the amount of fuel present in the tank after we have received fuel from the gas station. However, there is a way to solve this problem. We can fill the tank completely. Knowing the capacity of the tank, we now know how much fuel we have available. Therefore, what we need to do is to see the odometer as we fill the fuel tank completely; Drive the vehicle until the fuel burns completely and see the odometer again. Subtracting the initial odometer reading from the final, we get the distance traveled and divide it by the amount of fuel burned, we get the mileage for more visit here https://check-distance.com

But there is a shortage of this method. If we burn our vehicle's fuel completely, how can we get to the gas station? It is very unlikely that the fuel will burn exactly when we reach the gas station. Should we carry a can containing the fuel with us in our vehicle? Of course we can if we only calculate mileage once. But in reality, we need to calculate mileage often to pay attention to the condition of the vehicle, which is important for making a decision when repairing the vehicle.
