Measuring pence per mile is a common indicator of a vehicle's fuel efficiency, and as such, it typically can be an important factor in evaluating the overall performance of a vehicle. Additionally, knowing a vehicle's pence per mile will enable you to reimburse the owner of a vehicle accurately if you use it to travel a long distance.

## Instructions

1. 1

Fuel your vehicle to capacity.

2. 2

Make a note of the vehicle's milometer. You need to know exactly how far you're about to travel.

3. 3

Drive your vehicle as you regularly would.

4. 4

Refuel the vehicle to capacity.

5. 5

Record refuelling information. Write down the exact price of refuelling, and make a note of how many miles you travelled since the tank was last full. The latter can be done quickly by subtracting your milometer's previous number from its current one.

6. 6

Divide the price of the refuelling by the number of miles you travelled. This will give you an accurate reading of your vehicle's pence per mile.
