Home » How to check the mileage of any vehicle (old school method)

The classic method of “Tank Full” is always better and reliable to measure actual mileage.

Step by Step

  • no need of any device (not even a calculator) in case you are good in maths
  • Applicable on almost all vehicles on any planets (except SpaceX or NASA vehicles)
  • This is bit time consuming process for exact results but results are realistic.

Tank Full

Fill up fuel tank 100% (you can see the diesel level in fuel inlet)

Watch out the Odometer ( Fancy thing showing your cars real age )

Record the kilometers( km1 ) shown in odometer of car.

Go Home -> Go Office -> Go Pokémon

Drive for at least 200-300km.

Tank Full (Pocket Empty)

Fill up your tank again till last level or little plus/minus. Record the Liters of fuel ( L ) required to refill the tank to full up to the neck.

Take Readings Again….

Record the kilometers( km2 ).

Take Out Calculator (If you are not smart enough)

Just a simple formula
By subtracting old kilometers from new kilometers you will get exact driving km
Total distance (X) driven =new kilometer (km2) – old kilometer (km1)

NOW Mileage calculation
Total Mileage/average = total distance ÷ L (fuel in liters)

Now Whatever the results are the World is still The oblate spheroid.
