Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

A car travels at a speed of 64mph.

Its fuel consumption is 28 mpg.

It has a 11 gallon tank which was full when it started but

at that very moment began to leak fuel.

After 112 miles the car stops with a completely empty tank. How many gallons per hour was it losing?

fill the tank full

travel 100 miles

refill the tank to full then that will give you an fuel consumption figure / hundred miles

that will give you an estimate of how much fuel will be used then multiply that figure by the average cost per gallon and you have your answer

there is no other way to figure it out as driving habits , conditions , load , tire pressures speed all figure in the calculation but the 100 miles will reveal a base line to start with

Depends on miles per gallon of vehicle. Average mpg of say 15 mpg would take 15 gallons to travel 225 miles.(15x15=225). At $2.29 per gallon @15 gallons=$34.35. So figure out mpg of your vehicle and do the math.

set trip odometer to zero,fill fuel tank,drive car until 1/2 tank and fill up again record your miles from trip odometer, divide this number by the gallons of gas you just filled car with and this will give you miles per gallon (MPG)

In the context of transport, fuel economy is the energy efficiency of a particular vehicle, and is given as a ratio of distance travelled per unit of fuel consumed. Fuel economy is expressed in miles per gallon (mpg) in the USA and usually also in the UK-there is sometimes confusion as the imperial gallon is 20% larger than the US gallon so that mpg values are not directly comparable. In countries using the metric system fuel economy is stated in kilometres per litre (km/L) in the Netherlands, Denmark and in several Latin American or Asian countries such as India, Japan, South Korea, or as the reciprocal ratio, "fuel consumption" in liters per 100kilometers (L/100 km) in much of Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Litres per mil are used in Norway and Sweden.

Fuel consumption is a more accurate measure of a vehicle's performance because it is a linear relationship while fuel economy leads to distortions in efficiency improvements.

Weight-specific efficiency (efficiency per unit weight) may be stated for freight, and passenger-specific efficiency (vehicle efficiency per passenger).

The figures quoted for a new vehicle are pretty irrelivant because its what the car does with YOUR driving style that counts. So do this; fill the tank up so it won't hold another drop. Then take it for a long drive, combining highway and town driving (aim for about 100 miles) then fill the tank again. Then work out how much fuel you put in in gallons and divide that figure by the miles you covered.

E.g. 4 gallons of fuel used to travel 100 miles

4 / 100 = 25mpg.

When you refill the tank again drive again just to lower the level in the tank cos fuel expands when its warm and escapes out through the the breather hose which can be dangerous. But this method will tell you what mpg the car does when YOU are driving. The basic rules are, change gear early and dont work the engine hard. And on a highway (motorway? - Im from the UK) keep your speed to 56mph. Thats the optimum cruising speed manufacturers quote for ecconomy.

Hope this helps and happy driving

on normal that trk should be around 6-7 gallons used per one hundred miles drove. i based that at 15 mpg. now that is also based on a V8 engine. now 1 gallon of gas is 3.78541178 liters which totals 12 galons of gas to 45.42494136 liters. This would mean that it took 12 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles which totals 8.3333333333 mpg. not as good as i would have thought. 8 miles per gallon (mpg) hell that engine must be a big block 460. If it is that big cubic inch i could understand but any other motor should do better mpg than 8.3. so i agree that is not normal, tune up, or look for fuel leak in the fuel supply or( feed ) line. From the tank to the motor. This must be a canadian truck yes? well hope for the best or trade that guzzler in for a new breed. stay warm!

Real Life experiance, if you ride your bike at high speeds, even with Over Drive engaged, I end up doing about 180~200 miles per 5~5.25 gallons which breaks out to about 36~38 mpg.

Course, slowing it down to 60~65, in OT will get you another 25~35 miles per tank extra. If you need better MPG, suggest the 650 for the job, The litter is solid for rider/passenger, as the 650 is more for the rider only with added mileage clearly in the 40+mpg rating..

hey

at the begging u should clarify how many gallon u used.

112 miles at 28 miles per gallon --> 4 gallons burned (112/28)

So that means we leaked 11 - 4 = 7 gallons

Now figure out how long the car was driving.

112 miles at 64 miles per hour --> 1.75 hours

So, leak was at a rate of 7 gallons in 1.75 hours

7/1.75 = 4 gallons per hour leaked.
