Dual flush toilets usually use 3 and 6 liters of water depending on which way you push the flush handle - 3 liters for a little job and 6 liters for a major event.

Single low-flush toilets use either 4.5 liters or 6 liters.

How much water do you save if installed a dual flush or new low water toilet?

Compared to a 30 year old toilet? An amazing amount (I just installed two such toilets, replacing 30-year-old models). These are dual flush, and in the low flush mode - perfectly adequate for 70% of flushes - they use 1.3 gallons. The old toilets used almost 4 gallons per flush. A saving of 2.7 gallons per flush, times (how many??) flushes per day, times 365: You are easily talking thousands of gallons a year.

How much water goes down the toilet when you flush?

Generally, modern toilets are required to be low flow, which is 1.6 gallons (6L) per flush. Older toilets were 3 gpf (11L). Modern toilets vary in the amount of water required to flush them, from 6L to 3L. Some have a dual flush system allowing solids (faeces) to be flushed with a full volume flush, say of 6 or 4.5L, and liquids (urine) to be flushed with a smaller volume flush of about 3L. It is not possible to flush properly a toilet with less water than that with which it was designed to be flushed. Low volume flush toilets have been designed to work efficiently with a smaller volume of water.

How much water is wasted if your toilet handle is loose when you flush?

There is about four to five gallons wasted if you flush a toilet but I don't believe that it makes a difference if the handle is loose or not. Unless, the toilet is leaking from the handle or somewhere else.
