Aeons ago this site carried an early version of Tim Grahl’s ‘gas savings calculator’ widget. It worked in the US but wasn’t quite right for the UK.
Tim has now tweaked a version for the UK to show price in litres and miles per gallon. This weird mix of Imperial and metric is because that’s how we do it in the UK. We drink pints of beer, guzzle our gas in litres but still - mostly - use miles for distances and gallons for fuel consumption calculations. Er, but we don’t call it ‘gas’, it’s petrol.
What do you think of the calculator? If you know you car’s average fuel consumption and you cycle to work one or more days per week, insert your figures into the calculator. It’s in the right-hand widget column, under the ads and a couple of RSS newsfeeds.
