The given quantity in miles per liter and kilometers per liter is to be calculated. Concept Introduction: A unit of measurement is defined as a specific magnitude of a physical quantity which is adopted universally to represent that quantity. It provides meaning to the magnitude of that physical quantity. There are a number of units for a particular physical quantity, adopted in different measurement systems. These are inconvertible to each other by particular factors. It is know that 1 gallon = 3 .785 liter , hence, conversion factor for miles per gallon to miles per liter is as: 1 gallon 3 .785 liter As 1 mile = 1 .61 kilometers , conversion factor of miles per liter to kilometers per liter is as: 1 .61 kilometers 1 mile
