### Conversion formula

The conversion formula for converting from miles per Imperial gallon to litres per kilometre is as follows:

Step 1: Convert miles per UK gallon to kilometres per UK gallon by multiplying by 1.609, the conversion factor for miles to kilometres.

Step 2: Convert kilometres per UK gallon to kilometres per litre by dividing by 4.546 the conversion factor for litres to UK gallons.

Step 3: Convert kilometres per litre to litres per kilometre by taking the inverse (i.e. litres per kilometre = 1/kpl).

Thus when using Imperial (UK) gallons: lpkm = 1/((mpg * 1.609)/4.546)

### Conversion formula

The conversion formula for converting from miles per US Customary gallon to litres per 100km is as follows:

Step 1: Convert miles per US gallon to kilometres per US gallon by multiplying by 1.609, the conversion factor for miles to kilometres.

Step 2: Convert kilometres per US gallon to kilometres per litre by dividing by 3.785 the conversion factor for litres to US gallons.

Step 3: Convert kilometres per litre to litres per kilometre by taking the inverse (i.e. litres per kilometre = 1/kpl).

Thus when using US gallons: lpkm = 1/((mpg * 1.609)/3.785)

Car mileage figures are sometimes given as litres per kilometre in Canada and some European countries, although as engine efficiency improves kilometres per litre (km/l) is becoming a more common measure of performance.

If you are moving from the US or UK to a country that uses lpkm our converters can help you work out the fuel efficiency of a car you are looking to purchase and to compare it to figures that you are comfortable with.

### Conversion formulae

The conversion formulae for converting litres per kilometre to miles per gallon are as follows:

Step 1: Convert litres per kilometre to kilometres per litre by taking the inverse (i.e. kmpl = 1/lpkm).

Step 2: Convert kilometres per litre to kilometres per gallon by multiplying be the appropriate conversion factor (4.546 for Imperial gallons or 3.785 for US Customary gallons).

Step 3: Convert kilometres per gallon to miles per gallon by dividing by 1.609 the conversion factor for miles to kilometres.

ThUS:

mpg UK = (4.546 * (1 / lpkm)) / 1.609

and

mpg US = (3.785 * (1 / lpkm)) / 1.609
