First of all find out haw many gallons you will use.

every 12 miles you will use one gallon (12 mpg) and you are going 1500 miles so divide 12 into 1500

1500/12 = 125 This is the number of gallons you will use on the journey.

Next multiply the number of gallons you will use (125) by the price for a gallon (4.00 dollars)

125*4.00 = \$ 500.00

So it will cost 500 dollars.

Okay so we can drive 30 miles on one gallon. So divide 1500 by 30 to get the total number of gallons we will need. 1500/30 = 50. So we need 50 gallons, and if gas is 5 dollars a gallon, 50 * 5 = 250 dollars

1500 miles @ 25 miles per gallon = 1500/25 = 60 gallons 60 gallons @ 3.50 per gallon = 60*3.50 = 210

Assuming that 25 miles per mile is meant to be 25 miles per gallon(!), 1500 miles @ 25 miles per gallon = 1500/25 = 60 gallons. 60 gallons @ 4.00 per gallon = 60*4 = 240 units of currency.

If gas costs \$3.75 per gallon, your car gets 32 miles per gallon, and you drive 1500 miles, it will cost \$175.78. However, your miles per gallon is likely based on highway miles at a specific speed, and it is likely you will not always be at this speed so it may cost more.

1500 divided by 17.6 = 85.2 Therefore it will require 85.2 gallons of fuel. 85.2 x \$3.07 = \$261.56

The size of the tank doesn't matter. The price of gas on your route does matter. If your gas cost averages \$3.50, and you can use all of your money for gas, you can buy 100 gallons, which will take you 1500 miles at your stated MPG.

I get about 14-16 mpg on my 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500, 5.3L V8

The Chevy Silverado 1500 averaged about 16.5 miles per gallon in 2013. Additionally, it averaged 15.6 miles per gallon in 2012 and 15.3 miles per gallon in 2011, so it has improved in the last few years.

A 1991 Chevy Suburban will get 11 miles per gallon if driving in the city. It gets around 15 miles per gallon on the highway.

The average miles per gallon for a Chevrolet Silverado is 16.68 miles per gallon. This is a rough average as other sites indicate it is eleven miles per gallon. This will depend on your speed.

At a typical highway speed of 55 miles/hour, 1500 miles will take approximately 27 hours of driving time.

To get the answer we divide 1500 by 50: 1500 &divide; 50 = 30 hours. Now, that is actual driving time with the vehicle moving at the constant speed of 50 MPH, and does not allow for fuel stops, and meals.

You could get anywhere from 13-18 mpg, depending on how and where you drive it as well as the type of ram (1500, 2500, 3500). If it's a 1500 then 13-18 is your mileage. I don't know about 2500 or 3500 Rams.

The newest GMC Sierra 1500 gets about thirteen miles per gallon in the city. This is a fairly average mileage for most pick-up trucks, though much lower than most sedans.
