What does mpg or m/g mean?

‘Miles Per gallon’ or mpg, sometimes written as ‘m/g’ shows you how many miles the car in question can travel on a single gallon of fuel.

Often, the higher the mpg value, the more desirable the vehicle if everything else is equal, as considerable savings on fuel can be obtained.

How can I increase my mileage per gallon?

You may be able to get more for your money by doing the following:

  • Driving more ‘smoothly’ (less last-minute braking and rough gear changes!)
  • Driving at a speed appropriate to the current gear (e.g. not travelling at 50mph in 3rd)
  • Turning air conditioning off
  • Checking tyres are correctly inflated
  • Removing unnecessary weight
  • Avoiding traffic jams, if possible
