How much does a trip from London to Brighton set you back in petrol costs?

The answer: £6.9. In this calculation, we're considering a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's fuel efficiency rated at 37.5 miles per gallon. Carpooling with two passengers reduces the cost per person to £3.45 (£6.9 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £2.3 per passenger (£6.9 divided by 3), and with a full car of four, it's just £1.73 per passenger (£6.9 divided by 4).

Now, let's dissect the numbers behind this. The fuel cost is determined by the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For this journey, you'll need approximately 4.9 liters of fuel. Crunching the figures, that's where the total of £6.9 comes from for the journey from Blackpool to Bolton.


How much petrol a car uses depends in large part on the driver's habits. In this way: 

Increased fuel consumption might be a result of aggressive driving practices, including quick acceleration and frequent hard braking. More fuel efficiency is achieved with smooth, progressive acceleration and deceleration. 
Increased aerodynamic drag causes fuel consumption to rise with increasing speed. One way to save petrol is to keep your speed modest and constant. 
Leaving the engine running when stopped or waiting wastes petrololine; this is known as idling. To save petrol, turn off the engine when you're not moving for a long time. 
Using the Air Conditioner: Using the air conditioner at its highest setting can lead to an increase in fuel usage. You may conserve fuel by using the air conditioner rarely and by choosing natural ventilation when you can. 
Overloading: The engine has to work harder to move large goods or extraneous objects around, which increases fuel consumption. Fuel economy can be enhanced by reducing excess weight.
