Plan Your Holiday Road Trip with Fuel Economy's "My Trip Calculator"

One of Fuel Economy's newest tools-"My Trip Calculator"-is an interactive trip calculator and mapping tool that can help you plan your route, pick your car, and estimate the total fuel cost for your holiday road trip: Fuel Economy.

My Trip Calculator prompts you to enter your start and destination addresses, set your city driving percentage, and select up to three cars for comparison. Based on your input, the calculator displays the EPA fuel economy estimate ("MPG"), the national average fuel price ("Fuel Price"), the amount of fuel used ("Fuel Used (gal)"), and the cost of fuel used ("Fuel Cost") for each car.

My Trip Calculator is unique because it lets you do three things (plan your route, compare up to three cars, and estimate your total fuel cost) all in one place, with Fuel Economy's database of all light-duty cars and trucks sold in the United States since model year 1984. You can personalize "MPG" by entering your own fuel economy number rather than using the EPA estimate. The website updates the national average fuel price each week, or you can personalize the fuel price to what you are paying per gallon. And, because it's based on a mapping tool, My Trip Calculator provides estimated miles and driving time for your trip, turn-by-turn driving directions, and a trip map.
