# Fuel cost calculator

Alternative name: Gasoline cost calculator, Car trip cost calculator, Road trip cost calculator

This calculator is perfect for you if you want to know the total fuel expense for a trip. To calculate the fuel cost, you will need to know the distance to drive, your car's fuel efficiency, and the cost of fuel per liter.

For optimal fuel efficiency, a good tip is to drive slower. Driving slower will drastically increase fuel efficiency and reduce a trip's total fuel cost. You may try simulating this using this calculator. Just change the fuel efficiency up and down, and then compare the total trip costs.
