Gas Mileage Summary for My 1976 Celica

Gas Mileage

Here's some interesting trivia about gas mileage. Have you ever wondered which brand, grade, or octane rating gives better gas mileage? Well, I've collected thousands of miles of data on a wide variety of brands, octane ratings, grades, etc. All this information is from my 1976 Toyota Celica. I have found these results interesting, I hope you do as well.


Mileage Overview

Overall, from this record, I have traveled a total of 185,608.6 miles and used a total of 9,665.523 gallons of gas, getting an overall 19.2 miles per gallon, which is slightly different than the 20.04 miles per gallon calculated in the table. I believe that this difference of 0.84 miles per gallon is due to rounding when numbers are being processed and stored.

I, of course, make no guarantees about what kind of gas mileage you may receive in your vehicle, even if it is a '76 Celica with a 20R and nearly half a million miles under the hood, because there are way too many variables that come into play...
