Hi all. I read that Hummer2 consumes 1 gallon for each 10 mile, which means : 16 KM for each 3.7853 Liter (I think). is it considered to be a huge number ? well, I don't have experience in such topics (since I have no car ) I also read that MINI consumes 1 gallon for each 23 mile !
Units used to measure fuel consumption seem to vary incredibly depending on location - here in Australia the number quoted is always litres per 100Km..
My Landrover Discovery (Turbo Diesel) uses as few as 10lt/100KM and as much as 13.5lt/100KM (good when cruising not so good in traffic) My crappy Toyota Corolla 1.6 auto uses 10 to 12 lt/100KM
Your stats suggest the Hummer uses close to 24lt/100KM.... ..but your stats also seem to suggest that a Mini is no more efficient than my Landrover which seems extremely unlikely! [ February 08, 2005: Message edited by: Adrian Wallace ]
the mini data is likely in error due to a conversion problem somewhere, or it is taken from an old Mini rather than a current production model
My old Fiesta does roughly 1 liter for every 17km (on average), or 5.9 liters per 100km. Current production models reach between 4 and 5 liters per 100km depending on engine. The modern Mini is in that same range.
That's about 1.75 gallons per 100 miles, or 57 miles per gallon. Original Minis probably do get close to the stated figure, remember engines have become a lot more efficient rather quickly since the mid 1990s.
