What Is Good Gas Mileage?

There isn’t a right answer for what is good gas mileage. Depending on which vehicle you drive, your fuel economy can increase or decrease, which is why Culver City car shoppers take their time finding the perfect vehicle for them. See how much gas mileage you can get with the 2022 Honda Accord.

If you were to purchase a Honda vehicle that has great gas mileage, you’ll find that it’s not as good as sedan models, which are lighter than SUVs or trucks. Before signing off on a new or used car, you should do your research on the vehicles you’re interested in to see how much you can get.

Gas Mileage Calculator

If you’ve never heard of a gas mileage calculator or don’t know how to calculate gas mileage, it’s quite easy and you can do it from home or while driving through Torrance. Use the following steps to get started below:

  1. Fill your gas tank full and either reset your trip odometer or record the exact mileage after refilling. Be sure you also find out how much gas your tank holds by checking your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  2. Drive your car as you would normally. Note that if you accelerate more briskly or slowly or drive differently, your “typical” calculated gas mileage may be different than what you record.
  3. Refill your tank and record your mileage. If you wait longer to refill, your calculation will be more accurate as it will be based on a more balanced mix of driving conditions.
  4. The easiest way to calculate your gas mileage is to simply divide the number of miles traveled by the number of gallons of gas your vehicle took to refill. In sum, that’s miles driven divided by gallons of gas used.
  5. If you forget to check how many gallons you filled up your car at the pump on your gas receipt, you can go by where your tank was when you refilled (i.e. ¼, ½, or ¾) and then divide out your total tank capacity accordingly to come to the number of gallons refilled. Then, divide miles driven by that approximation. This will be less accurate since the gas gauge in some cars isn’t always 100% accurate. With a digital gas gauge that shows you exactly how many gallons of gas are in the tank, this is much easier than an analog gauge, though.
