The great thing about the Fibonacci series is that there are plenty of small numbers at the beginning that you can use multiples of to estimate numbers. Take 40 miles for example:

40mi= 5mi*8 (both numbers are in the sequence but we'll use 5)
5mi --> 8km --> 8km*8=64km (the actual distance is 64.3km)

Multiplying by 1.6 is easy enough though and for larger numbers it's probably the way to go.
