MPGeCost.com was created because
MPGe
is misleading. MPGe provides **energy** equivalency, not
**cost** equivalency. **Cost** equivalency is really what people care about, because it tells them how
much **money** they will be saving.
In order to determine cost equivalency, you must know the MPGe, the current cost of gasoline per gallon, and
the current cost of electricity per kwh (or other fuel type you wish to compare) in your area.

Once you have those three pieces of information (MPGe, Gas Cost, Kwh Cost) it becomes a fairly simple math
problem to solve **cost** for a given number of **miles traveled**. This cost can then be easily compared
to the MPG cost for a gallon of gasoline.

Pro Tip: Gasoline MPG is the same as gasoline MPGe. In other words, 18 MPG is the same as 18 MPGe gasoline.

However, while the math is fairly simple, it still takes a few steps to solve, and we didn't want to remember those steps. It's much easier to just visit a website or open an app, plug in the numbers, and get a result immediately.

Head on over to the calculators and get started!

CYA Disclaimer: MPGe itself is an estimate. Your mileage will vary depending on factors like terrain,
temperature, speed, how heavy your foot is, etc. Since MPGe itself is an estimate, MPGe Cost must also be
an estimate. Use the numbers generated by this site to ballpark an idea of cost. Your actual cost will,
of course, vary.
