Hi,

Have you been stumbling around when talking to an American about fuel consumption of a car?
Can you tell him/her what your car devours in MPG terms (Miles Per Gallon)?

If you can't, then goto: http://www.easysurf.cc/cnver4.htm#mgtolpck3

and find out how to have a clue. Example:
7,7 litres/100 km = 30.55 MPG (my best Volvo 945 value)

There are also a number of other conversions like:

kilometers/gallon to kilometers/liter
kilometers/gallon to miles/gallon
kilometers/gallon to miles/liter
kilometers/hour to knots
kilometers/hour to miles/hour
kilometers/liter to kilometers/gallon
kilometers/liter to miles/gallon
kilometers/liter to miles/liter
knots to kilometers/hour
knots to miles/hour
miles/gallon to kilometers/gallon
miles/gallon to kilometers/liter
miles/gallon to miles/liter
miles/hour to kilometers/hour
miles/hour to knots
miles/liter to kilometers/gallon
miles/liter to kilometers/liter
miles/liter to miles/gallon

liters per 100 kilometers to miles per Imperial gallon
liters per 100 kilometers to miles per US gallon
miles per Imperial gallon to liters per 100 kilometers
miles per US gallon to liters per 100 kilometers

Awesome! Dec 10, 2006

There are lots of conversion tools/sites availble, but I've never come across one that could convert such data.

Thanks!

Thank you, Mats Dec 10, 2006

one of the things I am constantly converting in my head, just like that Fahrenheit and Celsius thing which I have down to "an art" with memory aids such as 61=16 and 82=28.
When will they ever go metric around here!?

Beer? Dec 10, 2006

My husband and I spent a bit less than a week walking the West Highland Way a few years back (before we had kids) and after a hard day's walking our evenings were spent enjoying a drop of the good stuff in one of the fine Scottish pubs along the way. At the end of the hike (150km) we worked out our "fuel consumption" in liters (of beer) per hundred kilometers. Thanks to the link we can work it out in miles per gallon too!

Best,

A.

Another useful conversion tool Dec 11, 2006

Hi Mats,

Thanks for sharing the link!

On the other hand, I don't know if you are familiar with the following one:

http://garlock.eu.com/UK/useful.php

I have found it quite useful, because of all the technical documents I usually have to translate.

It is actually a free program you have to download and install in your PC. It quickly converts all kinds of volume, length, weight, etc. measures from/to both measuring systems.

And if you also need to know about fraction-decimal calculations, I also recommend this one:

Cheers,

Ivette

Thanks a lot for a super tool! Dec 11, 2006

Thanks ICL for a super tool. (Miles to the gallon was missing though)

The term definition section was also a find.

One example:

CLOSED LOOP:

In a control system, a type of control that has an input signal and a feedback of the result of the input signal which is used to modulate the input signal automatically.

See OPEN LOOP.
