I start with a full tank and the trip odometer reset. Drive till you're almost empty, then fill up again. Now divide the mileage driven by the number of gallons needed to fill it back up. That equals mpg.

Step1
Fill the vehicle's gas tank completely, writing down the vehicle's odometer reading (mileage).

Step2
Refill the tank completely when it is time to refuel. Using the same grade of gasoline as was used during the initial fill, write down the number of gallons required to fill the tank. Record the vehicle's new odometer reading. Miles-per-gallon can be calculated with two odometer readings.

Step3
Calculate the distance driven by subtracting the previous odometer reading from the new one.

Step4
Divide the number of miles driven by the number of gallons it took to fill the tank. The resulting number is the vehicle's miles-per-gallon for that driving period. Note that the number will be different for in-town vs. highway driving. If you're interested in the gas mileage for one over the other, follow the same steps, but stick to only driving in town or on the highway to get accurate results during your testing period.
