So i got in from work and my mum was trying to work out how many miles to the gallon her car does, not really sure why....

But to make a long (ish) story short, how much is a litre of unleaded? I reckon it would be about 80p but she says its £1.75 ish. So whos right?

    maybe she meant a gallon.

    but even then it's not £1.75 :confused:

    yeah, $1.56 per gallon.

    we pay 71p per litre, which works out as about £3.20 per gallon, which is dollars equals just under $5.20.

    $5.20 per gallon - that's something to complain about.
