Paul I use the following,
kms divided buy litres x 2.84 = mpg
A mate says 2.82 but they are both that close it dosent matter.

Rough and ready ,,without needing a calculator,,,4.5 lts = 1 gallon.,
100klm = 60miles.

Paul,

283.75/mpg=Litres per 100km

283.75/Litres per 100km=mpg

I hope this helps

Paul,
The short answer is you cannot convert L/100Km to MPG.

You'd first need to convert L/100Km to Km per Litres, and then convert K/L to MPG by multiplying K/L by approx 2.8 as others have mentioned.

Unless you're numerate, doing either calculation in your head is not that easy !

Suggest you download the table from the 4wd website shown above and print the table.

Your obviously NOT very numerate as you call it,,
where is the difficulty in a simple maths exercise,
if 4.5lts =1 gallon then 9lts = 2gallon ect,ect,
9lts per 100kl, therefore must workout to be 30 MILES to a gallon,,,
plain simple maths.
And on a different note ,Why do you think beer is packaged as it is ???
Wouldnt have anything to do with the fact that 12 x 750ml = 9lt = 2gls
or that 24 standard stubbies or cans = the same..
Was not that long ago simple maths was a school requirement,,,How the hell do you survive if your precious calculator dies.???

Hey publican
Also 24 hours in a day - 24 stubbies in a carton. A coincidence??
I think not :-)

Woddonnee ,,,not a coincidence at all ,,24 stubbs per ctn is designed so that the required fluid intake for the average Aussie male can be maintained over a 24hr period,,, my excuse and Im sticking to it.

Well Publican, I guess I asked for that.
My mistake was in not making clear that there is no direct conversion formula, that one has, as you quite rightly say, to convert Kms to Miles and to convert Litres to Gallons and then it's a snack.

I had a cardboard slide rule arrangement which was given away free by the Total oil company ( how long ago was that ) it was of good quality and converted everything to anything involved with motoring including fuel required for a trip. Lent it to a mate to do a trip and haven't seen it since (or him). Would love to get another , anybody got one?The Ghost
