# MPG to KM/L and L/100KM Conversion [Charts]

You can convert MPG figures into km/L and L/100km measurements by using these formulas:

• L/100km = 235.21 / MPG (US)
• L/100km = 282.48 / MPG (IMP)
• KM/L = MPG (US) x 0.425144
• KM/L = MPG (IMP) x 0.354006

But if you don’t feel like calculating and would rather just get the values from some charts, this post is for you.

We at PowerSportsGuide have compiled the most common conversion numbers (US and Imperial MPG) into this post!

## Some Definitions

### What is MPG?

Miles per gallon (a.k.a. MPG) is a fuel consumption indicator; it shows the distance (in miles) that a vehicle can travel per gallon of fuel.

If you want to compare MPG figures, the general rule is that the better fuel economy a car has, the higher MPG number you can expect.

However, it’s good to know that gallons can be US and Imperial as well. As the name suggests, US gallons are used in the United States, while Imperial gallons are used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and Australia.

When it comes to conversion numbers, one Imperial gallon is equal to 4.55 liters, while one US gallon is equal to 3.79 liters.

Since these measurements are not the same, the MPG-L/100km conversion formula will differ.

### What does L/100km Mean?

Unlike MPG, L/100 km (liters per 100 kilometers) is frequently used in Europe to describe the fuel consumption data of vehicles. This measurement tells how many liters of fuel a vehicle consumes while traveling a distance of 100 km.

This figure is often referred to as the vehicle’s fuel economy. The general rule is that the higher L/100km a vehicle has, the worse its fuel economy.

### What is Kilometers Per Liter?

The kilometer per liter (KPL) is a close relative of MPG; it measures the distance (in kilometers) that a vehicle can travel on one liter of fuel.

How do you calculate kilometers per liter?

To convert MPG to kilometers per liter, divide 100 by the L/100km figure.

For example, if a vehicle has 8 L/100km, that’s 100 / 8 = 12.5 km/L (kilometers per liter).

## How do You Convert MPG to Kilometers Per Liter (KM/L)?

One US MPG (miles per gallon) equals 0.425144 km/L (kilometers per liter). This means that you can convert US MPG to km/L by multiplying the MPG figure by the conversion ratio of 0.425144.

As an example:

3 MPG (US) x 0.425144 = 1.275 km/L

In case of imperial gallons, the conversion ratio is 0.354006.

3 MPG (IMP) x 0.354006 = 1.062 km/L

### What is the MPG to km/L formula?

In a nutshell, the MPG to KM/L formulas are as follows:

• KM/L = MPG (US) x 0.425144
• KM/L = MPG (IMP) x 0.354006

## How to Convert Kilometers Per Liter to Miles Per Gallon

Let’s look at the inverse of the calculations above.

You can turn a km/L (kilometer per liter) figure into an MPG (US) measurement by multiplying the km/L figure by a conversion ratio of 2.35214.

Examples:

8 km/L x 2.35214 = 18.8 MPG (US)

The conversion ratio for Imperial MPG is 2.82481:

8 km/L x 2.35214 = 22.6 MPG (IMP)

### What is the MPG to km/L formula?

Based on these, the km/L to MPG formulas are as follows:

• MPG (US) = km/L x 2.35214
• MPG (IMP) = km/L x 2.82481

## How do You Convert MPG to L/100KM?

To convert MPG (US) into L/100km, divide 235.21 by the MPG figure. In other words, one MPG (US) equals 235.2 L/100 km.

For example, converting 22 MPG (US) to liters per 100 km:

235.21/22 MPG (US) = 10.7 L/100km

The number to be divided for Imperial MPG is 282.48:

282.48/22 MPG (IMP) = 18.8 L/100km

### What is the MPG to L/100km Formula?

Therefore, MPG to L/100km formulas are as follows:

• 235.21 / MPG (US) = [L/100km]
• 282.48 / MPG (IMP) = [L/100km]

## How do You Convert L/100KM to MPG?

How do you convert liters per 100km to MPG?

To convert L/100km into MPG (US), divide 235.21 by the L/100km figure. In other words, 235.2 L/100 km is equal to 1 MPG (US).

For example, converting 9 L/100km into MPG (US):

235.21 / 9 L/100km = 26.13 MPG (US)

The number to be divided for Imperial MPG is 282.48:

282.48 / 9 L/100km = 31.39 MPG (IMP)

### What is the MPG to L/100km Formula?

Therefore, the L/100km to MPG formulas are as follows:

• 235.21 / [L/100km] = MPG (US)
• 282.48 / [L/100km] = MPG (IMP)
