Efficiency / MPG
Keep in mind that people don't usually get the advertised fuel efficiency for their car. To calculate your actual miles per gallon, reset your trip meter when you have a full tank. The next time you fill up your car, divide the number of miles you've driven with the number of gallons you just put in your tank. Many newer cars will also have this information available via the menu.
