# Fuel consumption conversions

These fuel consumption converters allow a simple conversion for most fuel consumption measurements including miles per gallon to kilometres per litre (mpg to kpl), miles per gallon to kilometres per gallon (mpg to kpg), miles per litre to kilometres per litre (mpl to kpl), miles per UK gallon to miles per US gallon and miles per gallon to litres per 100 kilometres (mpg to L/100km).

Alternatively the conversion tables show conversions for commonly used miles per gallon to kilometres per litre values for both UK Imperial and US Customary gallons.

## Abbreviations

### Miles per gallon

Abbreviations used for miles per gallon include mpg, MPG, mipg, MiPG, m/gal, mi/gal and m per gal.

### Kilometres per litre
