Fuel Consumption Conversion Calculatorto Convert MPG and Liters per 100KM

The Fuel Consumption Conversion Calculator on this page will instantly convert between miles per gallon and liters per 100 kilometers.

This calculator was created in response to the following sent to me by a site visitor from Canada:

Do you have or could you do one that could tell me what the Miles per Gallon mileage is on new car listings, when it only says the Litres per 100 kilometers, or the other way around?

Thanks to your request, I do now.

This fuel economy conversion calculator will convert liters per 100 kilometers to miles per gallon (US and Imperial) as well as convert miles per gallon to liters per 100 kilometers.

Plus, unlike other online gas mileage conversion calculators, the calculator on this page will also include the step-by-step conversion formula in the generated results.

And finally, the calculator also allows you to create a custom fuel consumption conversion chart that you can print out and take with you when you go car shopping.
