so i calculated it--this car has an 18 gallon tank...i have 1/4 tank left and almost have 200 miles to this tank...so im getting about 12 mpg
thats also not the most effective way to calculate your gas mileage, your gas gauge could very easily be a little off...heck if i trusted my gas gauge id be filling up every 20 miles or so


go fill the car up, reset your trip meter, and then the next time you fill up divide the miles on the trip meter by how many gallons of gas you put in, thats the only accurate way to do it.
