What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Blackpool to Bearsden by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £34.8. In this computational scenario, the price of petrol is assumed to be 143 pence per liter, and the car's fuel efficiency stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For individuals contemplating carpooling arrangements, the expenditure per traveler diminishes as the number of passengers increases. With two passengers, the cost per person amounts to £17.4 (£34.8/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £11.6 (£34.8/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £8.7 (£34.8/4).

To provide further elucidation on the calculation process, let us dissect how the final figure is derived:

Initially, the requisite fuel quantity is determined by dividing the distance traveled by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey spanning 200.71 miles, this computation entails multiplying 200.71 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and subsequently dividing by the car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 mpg, resulting in a requirement of 24.3 liters of fuel.

Subsequently, the fuel expenditure is computed by multiplying the amount of fuel required by the price per liter. Given a consumption of 24.3 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £34.8.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Blackpool to Bearsden stands at £34.8.


Several factors can influence the cost of fuel when driving a car:

  1. Fuel Prices: The cost of fuel itself is a primary determinant of fuel expenses. Fluctuations in global oil prices, local taxes, and market demand can all influence fuel prices.

  2. Fuel Efficiency: The fuel efficiency of the vehicle plays a crucial role in determining fuel costs. Cars with higher fuel efficiency will consume less fuel per mile or kilometer traveled, resulting in lower fuel expenses.

  3. Driving Habits: Personal driving habits, such as aggressive acceleration, speeding, and frequent braking, can significantly impact fuel consumption. Adopting smooth driving practices and maintaining a steady speed can help improve fuel efficiency and reduce costs.

  4. Vehicle Maintenance: Proper maintenance of the vehicle, including regular oil changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups, is essential for optimal fuel efficiency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and increased fuel costs.

  5. Route Selection: The route taken during driving can affect fuel expenses. Opting for routes with lower speed limits, less traffic congestion, and fewer stops can help improve fuel efficiency and reduce costs compared to congested city routes.

  6. Vehicle Weight: Carrying excess weight in the vehicle, such as unnecessary cargo or roof racks, can increase fuel consumption. Removing unnecessary weight can improve fuel efficiency and lower fuel costs.
