hi what is the meaning by the car usage ?

it's the first time I heard about that

for example

( car usage 10,000 mile per year )

what is that mean? is it power of the car? is that an option for the car or what is it?

or is it the rank of the fuel ?

please help ..

This is just 'How much the car has been used'. It is measured by saying how many miles are 'on the clock'. Generally a second hand car will be better if its mileage is lower.

The dictionary defines efficiency as "minimum expenditure (of time and) effort". In the case of car efficiency how well does the engine convert fuel into miles travelled. A car is more efficient if it goes further for each gallon of fuel.

If you wanted to work out how efficient a car is, measure how much fuel is needed for a given journey in miles. Divide miles by gallons to get the measure in miles per gallon.
