An explanation of the traditional litres/100km rate.

How to measure your fuel economy. The best way to measure your fuel economy is by filling up a full tank of fuel. Only fill it up till the pump clicks once and releases. Before leaving the petrol station press your trip meter or if your car does not have one you can note down the odometer reading. You can now drive the car as normal till you have to fill up again. A note - Try fill up from the same place you filled up the first time, the reason behind this is each fuel pump will can have different cut of points where the fuel will stop filling. This can interfere with your reading. Once your ready to fill up again till the pump clicks once. Take note of your trip meter reading (or odometer reading) and the amount of litres it took to fill up the tank. Its now just a matter of doing the sums: Litres/100km = litres used to fill up DIVIDED BY trip meter reading MULTIPLY BY 100. You now have your litres per 100 km. Most 4 cylinder cars under 2 litres will average between 6-10L/100km on average 6 cylinder cars will average around 9-13L/100km 8 cylinder (or V8) cars can average between 10-18L/100km
