NEFFA mpg

June 13th, 2006

Finally got around to calculating mpg for the trip to NEFFA:

vechicle gas cost gas price gallons miles mpg
rented van $129 $2.95 43.7 718 16.4
Allison's car $81 $2.95 27.2 670 24.8

Note that miles_van > miles_car because we didn't take the car to NEFFA on Saturday. Also, multiplying by vehicle capacity we get 197 miles-people/gallon for the van and 124 mp/g for the car. So the van does pretty well per person. You could have only 8 people in the van and still come out ahead.
