Enter the fuel efficiency (mpg) and the total amount of fuel (gallons) into the Fuel Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Fuel Distance. 

Fuel Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Fuel Distance. 

FD = FE * #G

  • Where FD is the Fuel Distance (miles)
  • FE is the fuel efficiency (mpg) 
  • #G is the total amount of fuel (gallons) 

How to Calculate Fuel Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Fuel Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the fuel efficiency (mpg). 
    • The fuel efficiency (mpg) is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the total amount of fuel (gallons). 
    • The total amount of fuel (gallons) is provided as: 24.
  3. Finally, calculate the Fuel Distance using the equation above: 

FD = FE * #G

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

FD = 30 * 24 = 720 (miles)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

fuel efficiency (mpg) = 7

total amount of fuel (gallons) = 100

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

FD = FE * #G = ?
