How Crude








Gasoline Consumption: Crude Miles Per Barrel (MPB)

Ever wondered how many barrels of crude oil you as an individual consume?

There are 42 gallons of crude oil in a barrel, and each barrel makes 20 gallons of gasoline.

If it takes 20 gallons of gas to fill your tank, you use a barrel of crude each fill up.

If you car gets 28 mpg, that's 560 mpb (miles per barrel.)

If you drive 19000 miles in a year, you will use apx. 34 barrels of crude a year.

Now is the time to curb crude oil use and turn to clean, renewable fuel alternatives.
