Cost of Fuel in Canadian Dollars
I'm looking to do some costing on driving a circle around the United States. I'm not great at math, so I'm looking for help. Here are my numbers:
I drive a truck with approximately a 16L/100KM (urban) fuel economy, and I'm looking at driving a rough total of 22,000KM (13,700M) trip through the United States. I'm accounting for conversion of metric to standard and CAD to USD.
Fuel economy: 16L/100KM
Average price per litre: 1.73USD
Conversion $ USD/CAD: 1.33
22000/100*16*1.73*1.33 = ~$8,100CAD.
Have I done this correctly?

Close enough based on your figures ... I think your estimate of gas price at 1.73 USD per liter is a bit high. Highest cost these days is a bit above \$3.00 per gallon in California which is about \$0.80 per liter $\approx$ 1.06 CAD.
Of course, Trump's recent bellicose actions in the Middle East and elsewhere tends to make the cost of oil go up, so your estimate might not be that far off in the next few months.

Can we also research for additional automobile fuels manufacturing than Gasoline (Petrol,Diesel) & CNG?
Thanks & Regards,

Here's a useful formula for converting litres per 100 km to miles to a Canadian gallon.
282.48 ÷ (L/100 km) = miles per gallon
However a U.S. gallon is about five sixths of a Canadian gallon. So to convert litres per 100 km to miles to a U.S. gallon, use this formula instead.
235.22 ÷ (L/100 km) = miles per gallon
