    The formula for fuel consumption is
    (rpm*gas*CONSUMPTION)/1000 litres

    My car consumes 6,4 litres per 100km. It revs to 6400. What should I do?

    Drive it for 20 km and see how much fuel it uses, then multiply your CONSUMPTION value by: 6.4/5/fuelUsed.

    There's no other effective way unless it's a car racing in a series with regulated fuel flow (e.g. F1 or LMP1).

    20 miles flatout in a straight line or on a circuit?

    At the speed the fuel consumption test was done (90km/h if it's EPA "highway") on anything long enough to go 20km at that speed.

    I've done it for the Seat at Nords. But I know the real consumption of the car at this track :)
    Also 20 km are not the same like 20 miles ;)
