This calculation allows you to estimate how many (if at all) times you will need to fill your tank on a trip.
The calctool unit menus allow you to enter the distance and fuel efficiency in most of the many standard and conventional units that are used around the world. "Reciprocal units" are also included, so that you can input fuel efficiency for example in either miles per gallon (mpg) or gallons per mile (gpm).
