Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

convert miles to kilometers and gallons to liters. 

1 mile =km

1 gallon= 

27.5 miles would then be= 27.5 x 1.60934 =44.2568 km

so, the car consumes liters in km

so in 489 km, the car would consume?

489 x 44.2568/ 3.78541= 5, 717.102 liters

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
