Question: Cost per mile = ?

Statement 1: For the trip, Truck T consumed diesel that cost \$2.70 per gallon.

Neither can we calculate the total spend on fuel nor can we calculate total distance travelled in trip T hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: For the trip, Truck T was driven 540 miles.

Total Distance of Trip T = 540 miles

But the total spend on fuel is unknown to calculate mileage hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two Statements

Distance = \$540
Fuel price per gallon = \$2.7
Total Fuel consumed in Trip T = ??? Unknown hence
NOT SUFFICIENT
