1. Mileage is the distance covered per unit fuel by the vehicle under some specified conditions.
Some of these conditions are:
- The road surface should be smooth and straight.
- The vehicle should run at a constant speed.
2. Mostly mileage is measured in mpg (miles per gallon) or in kmpl (kilometer per litter).We can change mpg into kmpl by multiplying mpg by 0.42.
- 1 mpg = 0.42 kmpl (US gallon)
- 1 kmpl = 2.35 mpg (US gallon)
3. Mileage is commonly measured in two ways:
- Mileage in city.
- Mileage on highway.
4. Mileage on highway is always greater than mileage in city.
5. All automobile manufacturers claim only mileage.

1. Average is distance covered per unit fuel by the vehicle under no specified condition. It is also measured in mpg (miles per gallon) or in kmpl (kilometer per litter).
2. When a customer purchase a vehicle and run it for few days than the distance covered per unit fuel under the road condition of his/her city is called average for that vehicle.
3. To measure average, full the fuel tank and reset the odometer (distance measurement meter) of your vehicle to zero. When tank is empty, read the odometer reading and divide it by your vehicle fuel tank capacity. The result is average of your vehicle.
4. Average is always smaller than mileage.
