###### Convert measurements to metrics in Excel
martian@... 11th Sep 2008
Great post.
I was unaware of that function.
Is there anything in there for fuel efficiency formulae?
I'd like to be able to track my car's fuel economy, but we're all metric here in Canada.
So basically it would be nice to be able to calculate MPG's and be able to convert it to L/100kms.

Just for a laff ...

These are from http://www.onlineconversion.com/fuel_consumption.htm

1 miles/gallon(US) = 235.2145833 liters/100 km thus

25 miles/gallon(US) = 9.4085833 liters/100 km

or

1 liters/100 km = 235.2145833 miles/gallon(US) thus

12 liters/100 km = 19.6012153 miles/gallon(US)

Who said we can't play games in IT?
