The math is easy either way. The important part is to remember that it
is a percentage issue, not a simple subtraction one. Of course, that
assumes one has a "need" for that 16 mpg vehicle (which one might, if
replacing a 10 mpg one).
Oh, and on the mpg vs. l/100 km thing, at least in "our" system a bigger
number is better. That works well for Americans.
