Look on line... put in the make and model of your car and then MPGs in google search. It will pop right up.

if you paid \$75 and gas is \$3.50/gal.. you got about 21.43 gal. half a tank gone would be 10.71 gal used to travel 210 miles, voila.

I got about 21 mpg but I don't know if I did it right

I think the answer is 21 mpg.

If filling it up at \$3.50/gall = \$75, then you have about a 20 gallon gas tank.

If half a tank is 210m, then a full tank is 420mi.

420 divided by 20 gallons is 21mpg.

How's my math and logic here?

Can't figure that in my head because you don't have the actual gallons that your vehicle holds.

However, from what info you gave, I can tell you that each mile is costing you about 18 cents.
