    #1: fill your car full of gas
    #2: Drive a descent distance, (several hundred km's)
    #3: Mark down how many km's you drove
    #4: Refill the car again with gas (mark down how many litres it takes to fill)
    #5: Convert the amount of litres your car took to refill to gallons
    #6: Convert the mileage that you drove (km's) to miles
    #7: Take the amount of miles that you drove and devide it by the amount of gallons your car took to refill.
    #8: You have your gas mileage calculated, the end.

    I was just going to say "push the button on the end of the turn signal stalk that tells you all of that information" but I don't think that is available from Mitsubishi. Much like reliability and quality.

    Also, make sure you use U.S. gallons and not Imperial.
