A hybrid SUV consumes fuel at a rate of 12.8 km/L. How many miles can the car travel on 22.5 gal of gasoline?
Step 1 of 3
Here, we have to calculate the miles that the car travel by using 22. 5gal of gasoline.
The car consumes fuel at a rate = 12.8 km/L
Fuel required by the car = 22.5 gal
1 gal = 3.78541 L
Thus, Fuel required by the car = 22.5 gal x = 85.17 L
Therefore, the distance travelled by the car = Mileage of the car x Fuel consumed by the car
= 12.8 x 85.17 L
= 1090.18 Km
Distance travelled by the car is = 1090.18 km
Conversion of distances from km to miles
1 mile = 1.6093 km
Conversion factor =
Thus, Distance travelled by the car is = 1090.18 km x = 677.42 miles.
Therefore, the car can travel 677.42 miles on 22.5 gal of gasoline
