Fuel Efficiency (Volume) Unit Converter
Fuel efficiency based on volume can also be expressed in units of joules per liter (J/L), which is a measure of the amount of energy produced by a fuel per unit of volume. This measure is often used in scientific and engineering contexts to compare the energy content of different fuels.
Here are a few examples of fuel efficiency based on volume in real-life situations using the joules per liter unit:
Gasoline: Gasoline has an energy density of about 34-36 megajoules per liter (MJ/L). Therefore, a car that gets 10 km/L and uses gasoline as fuel is consuming about 3.4-3.6 MJ per kilometer.
Diesel: Diesel has a higher energy density than gasoline, typically around 38-40 MJ/L. A diesel car that gets 8 km/L is consuming about 4.75-5 MJ per kilometer.
Ethanol: Ethanol has a lower energy density than gasoline or diesel, typically around 23-28 MJ/L. Therefore, a car that gets 8 km/L and uses ethanol as fuel is consuming about 2.9-3.5 MJ per kilometer.
Fuel efficiency based on energy content is important for understanding the performance of vehicles and other equipment that use liquid fuels.
