i may be confused because of there is lots of types of galloons.
us liquid and solid galoons, imperial galoon(which i don't know what is it
so calculation can be wrong with different values.

by the way as soon as possible England and Japan must start driving at the right side of the road
and USA must use kilometer, liters, kilograms and and all other metric values )))
I sure as hell hope not in my lifetime. We are just fine using American Standard, Thank you very much.

I have no idea why we here in America are using a " Standard " vs. a " Metric " system. That duality brought down a satellite a few years back . Maybe it was our way of telling King George to stuff his shillings up his arse . I don't know, but that's my two tuppence worth.

Over 29,804 miles I've averaged 37.83 MPG. If I can keep the engine spinning at less than 3,000 RPM, the fuel economy will improve into the low 40's. Take it out on the highway for a long trip at anything consistently over 3,000 RPM and the mid 30's prevail.

I must be one of the luckier ones as at 80 mph and 3400 rpm with the Voyager Trike kit I average 30 mpg. If I drop down to 55 mph I get around 36-38 mpg. I am super happy with this since I have 3 wheels in back and one up front on the ground.

US gallon = 3.785 litres
Imperial (UK, Canada, Au) gallon = 4.54 litres
Statute miles = 1.609 kms
Maybe that will help with your calculations....

This is right in the same range as my 2003 with 86,000 miles.
Got as low as 32.4 MPG @ 75 mph riding into wind with trailer on in South Dakota.
