Planning a road trip is thrilling, but it can also be daunting, especially when you're trying to budget for the journey. One of the trickiest aspects to anticipate is your fuel cost. If you've ever found yourself asking, "How much gas will I use on a trip?" then keep reading. We've got a straightforward method to calculate your fuel needs, ensuring your trip stays within budget.

The Traditional Way of Calculating Fuel Cost

Traditionally, you'd have to know your car's fuel efficiency (often expressed in miles per gallon or liters per 100km), and then do a bit of math, factoring in the distance you'll travel. Let's not forget the varying fuel prices across different states or countries!

It's time-consuming and often leaves room for error, which is the last thing you need when planning a trip.
