• 1. FUEL ECONOMY
• 2. One of the LARGEST costs of owning and operating a  vehicle is FUEL. The # of litres of fuel that a vehicle needs to travel 100 km  is called its FUEL ECONOMY. Did you also know that F.E. is better on the highway than in  the city because there are less stops and turns and you can  travel at a higher speed, constantly. litres of fuel used * 100 FUEL ECONOMY  = km driven
• 3. FIRST SOME WARM UP QUESTIONS  WITH BASIC EVERY DAY VEHICLE USE...
• 4. EX Calculate the total distance travelled based on the following  odometer readings: 1st: 014569.2 km 2nd: 015498.4 km FYI:  An odometer keeps track of how many km a vehicle has travelled and is located on    the dashboard of most vehicles.
• 5. EX A car needs 46 L of gas to fill up.  If gas costs 79.9 cents per L,  what is the cost of filling up?
• 6. EX A car travelled 503 km before stopping to fill up.  If 31.8 L of gas were  pumped into the vehicle, find the fuel economy and the cost to fill up if gas costs 68.8 cents per L.
• 7. EX Sarah travelled a total of 250 km in the city and 150 km on the highway. Her F.E. in the city is 11.7 L / 100 km and 6.4 L / 100 km on the highway. If gas cost her 72.4 cents per L, find the total # of L of fuel she used and the cost of the fuel.
