Do you get every last drop of gasoline?

April 16, 2017

I was curious to when you're pumping gas, and you have those last 5 or 6 drops that you wait there for, how many miles do those drops actually convert into?

According to this website: there are 90,922 drops (rounded up) in 1 gallon of water.  Let's say you get 35 mpg in your car, each drop is 3.849453377620378e-4 miles.  or about 2 feet per drop.  So those 5 or 6 last drops you're waiting for will get you about 10-12 extra feet. 

I paid for those feet, so I'll wait for them.
