How much does it cost to travel from Blackpool to Glenrothes by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £39.5. In this calculation, we've assumed a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's petrol consumption at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those considering carpooling, with two passengers, the cost per person is £19.75 (£39.5/2). With three passengers, the cost reduces to £13.17 per person (£39.5/3). And for four passengers, it further decreases to £9.88 per person (£39.5/4).

To break it down further, here's how we arrive at the result:

The fuel required is determined by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption. For a journey of 227.57 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 227.57 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 27.6 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 27.6 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £39.5.

In conclusion, the fuel cost from Blackpool to Glenrothes amounts to £39.5.

 

The fuel economy is highly sensitive to the state of the vehicle. In this way:

The effectiveness of the engine's fuel combustion and its overall consumption are both improved with regular engine maintenance. Maintaining your engine with routine oil changes, air filter replacements, and tune-ups will keep it running at its best.

Problems with the fuel system, including blocked injectors or a malfunctioning oxygen sensor, can cause petrololine to burn improperly and increase consumption. Preventing such problems requires regular maintenance and rapid repairs.

Problems with tires: When the tires are worn down or not inflated properly, the vehicle has to use more energy (and fuel) to go forward because of the increased rolling resistance. You may enhance your fuel efficiency by changing worn-out tires and keeping them properly inflated.

Aerodynamics: If the body of the vehicle is dented or has panels that aren't flush with the body, airflow will be disrupted and aerodynamic drag will increase, resulting in increased fuel consumption. The best aerodynamic performance is possible with a well-maintained vehicle body.
