How much is the expense of driving from Blackpool to Hamilton?

The expense of driving from Blackpool to Hamilton using petrol amounts to £31.7. This computation is based on a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 miles per gallon. For those considering carpooling arrangements, the cost per passenger decreases with more occupants. With two passengers, the cost per person is £15.85 (£31.7 divided by 2). With three passengers, it's approximately £10.57 per person (£31.7 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's £7.93 per person (£31.7 divided by 4).

To delve deeper into the calculations, we can explore the fuel cost calculation. This is determined by the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For this journey, approximately 22.2 liters of fuel would be required. Multiplying this by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £31.7 for the trip from Blackpool to Hamilton.


The state of the road might impact fuel usage due to many factors.

Surface roughness refers to the unevenness of road surfaces, which can be caused by potholes, fractures, or uneven pavement. This unevenness can lead to an increase in rolling resistance. Consequently, the tires must exert more effort to sustain velocity, resulting in increased fuel consumption.

Friction: The presence of inadequate road conditions can augment the level of friction between the tires and the road surface. The friction between surfaces generates drag, necessitating the engine to exert more effort to overcome it. Consequently, the use of fuel might escalate, particularly when driving at higher velocities.

Traffic congestion refers to the situation where roads experience a high volume of vehicles, resulting in frequent halts, starts, and prolonged waiting in traffic lines. The consistent acceleration and deceleration can result in higher fuel usage when compared to driving on uncongested, unrestricted roadways.

Changes in elevation can have an impact on fuel usage, particularly for vehicles equipped with less powerful engines, when encountering roads with steep inclines or drops. Ascending a slope necessitates greater engine power and consequently more fuel consumption, but descending a decline may necessitate additional braking and fuel usage to maintain control.

Weather Conditions: Inclement weather conditions, including precipitation such as rain, snow, or ice, can have a detrimental impact on road grip and the stability of vehicles. Motorists may be required to modify their velocity and driving conduct, which can have an effect on fuel usage.

Surface Quality: Smooth road surfaces with high-quality pavement often lead to decreased fuel consumption in comparison to rough or inadequately maintained roads. The reason for this is that smooth roads decrease rolling resistance, hence enabling more efficient vehicle performance.

In general, the quality of roads has a substantial impact on petrololine consumption, and drivers may encounter differences in fuel economy based on the state of the roads they are traveling on.
