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

The answer: £27.6. 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 £13.8 (£27.6 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £9.2 per passenger (£27.6 divided by 3), and with a full car of four, it's just £6.9 per passenger (£27.6 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 19.3 liters of fuel. Crunching the figures, that's where the total of £27.6 comes from for the journey from Blackpool to Harborough.
 

 

Tire air pressure affects automotive fuel economy because:

Rolling Resistance: Well-inflated tires demand less energy to move. This minimizes engine workload and boosts fuel efficiency. However, underinflated tires increase rolling resistance, making the engine work harder and using more petrololine.

Tires filled to the manufacturer's recommended pressure provide best performance and fuel efficiency. Any tire pressure below or above this suggested range can reduce fuel efficiency.

Uneven tire wear increases rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Regularly checking and maintaining tire pressure helps save tire wear and fuel use.

Properly inflated tires improve handling and stability, especially when cornering and braking. Smoother driving reduces rapid acceleration and braking, improving fuel efficiency.

Environmental Impact: Proper tire pressure improves fuel efficiency, lowers tire wear, and extends tire life. This reduces the environmental impact of tire disposal and manufacture, improving sustainability.

Fuel efficiency, vehicle performance, and safety depend on optimum tire air pressure. Regularly checking and adjusting tire pressure according to manufacturer guidelines saves fuel and reduces environmental impact.
