    Operating a Vehicle Operating a Vehicle Presentation Transcript

    • Owning and Operating a Vehicle Unit 3
    • Operating a Vehicle – Fuel Economy A major cost of operating a vehicle is the fuel cost. Every vehicle is different when it comes to number of litres of fuel needed to travel 100 km. In an imperial system fuel economy is expressed as miles per gallon. Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Expressing Fuel Economy Fuel economy can be expressed in metric or in imperial. Metric: It is expressed in the number or litres of fuel needed to go 100 km. Ex. 9.5 L/100 km Imperial: It is expressed as the number of miles you can travel on 1 gallon of gas. Ex. 30 miles/gallon or 30 mpg Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Example Problem #1 A car requires 52 litres of gas to fill the tank. If the cost of gasoline s 58.8 cents a litre, calculate the cost to fill the tank. Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Example Problem #2 Calculate the distance traveled in km, given the following odometer readings: Initial Reading: 012862.8 Final: 013639.7 Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Example Problem #3 Which car has the best fuel economy? Car A: 8L/100km Car B: 6.8L/100km Car C: 1.5L/100Km Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Calculating Fuel Economy Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle. Example: The last time the tank was filled, the odometer reading was 32,645.1 km. Filling the vehicle's gas tank completely and writing down the vehicle's odometer reading . Step 1
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle. Calculating Fuel Economy Example: The next time the tank was filled, the odometer reading was 33,001.3. It took 55 litres to fill the tank. When it's time to refuel, filling the tank completely and writing down the number of litres it took to fill the tank and the vehicle's new odometer reading. Once two odometer readings are taken, fuel economy can be calculated. Step 2
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle. Calculating Fuel Economy Example: The distance driven would be 33,001.3 minus 32,645.1, or 356.2 kilometers. Calculating the distance driven by subtracting the new odometer reading from the previous one . Step 3
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle. Calculating Fuel Economy Example: (55 L X 100)/ 356.2 km. The fuel economy for that driving period would be 15.4 L/100 km. Multiply the number of litres used by 100 and divide by the number of kilometers driven. The result is the vehicle's fuel economy for that driving period. Step 4
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Example Problem #4 A car with a full tank of gas traveled 572 km. It required 41.2 L of gas to fill the tank. Find the fuel economy and cost (56.3 cents per litre)? Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Example Problem #5 Gina traveled a total of 350 km in the city; and 200 km on the highway during one week of driving. Her car has a fuel economy of 105 L/100 km in the city, and 7.4 L/100 km on the highway. Gasoline costs 62.5 cents per litre. Calculate the number of litres she used and the cost. Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
    • Fuel Economy – Research Activity Using the internet, research 5 different vehicles, recording their fuel economy in litres per 100 km. Calculate the # of litres required to travel 24 000 km in one year. Calculate the cost of fuel, using today's price of 99.9 cents per litre. Unit 3 – Owning & Operating A Vehicle D-2 Solve problems involving the purchase and operation of a vehicle.
