How much does it cost to drive from Blackpool to Basildon with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Blackpool to Basildon. The journey using petrol will set you back 45.2 pounds. Now, let's walk through how we arrived at this figure.

Firstly, we consider the price of petrol, which is 143 pence per liter. Next, we take into account the car's fuel consumption rate, which stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, suppose you're carpooling. If there are two passengers sharing the ride, each person will contribute 22.6 pounds (£45.2 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 15.07 pounds (£45.2 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 11.3 pounds (£45.2 divided by 4).

Let's delve deeper into the calculations. To determine how much fuel is needed for the trip, we rely on the distance and the car's fuel efficiency. The distance between Blackpool and Basildon is approximately 260.99 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 31.6 liters of petrol. We obtained this value by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters.

Once we have the amount of fuel needed, we calculate the total cost. Multiplying the fuel quantity (31.6 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 45.2 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Blackpool to Basildon is 45.2 pounds.
