What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Blackpool to Oadby and Wigston by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £25.9. 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 £12.95 (£25.9/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £8.63 (£25.9/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £6.48 (£25.9/4).

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 149.54 miles, this computation entails multiplying 149.54 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 18.1 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 18.1 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £25.9.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Blackpool to Oadby and Wigston stands at £25.9.

 

Driving habits can have a significant impact on car fuel consumption. Some explanations are below:

  1. Acceleration and Deceleration: Aggressive driving habits such as rapid acceleration and frequent hard braking can lead to increased fuel consumption. Smooth, gradual acceleration and deceleration are more fuel-efficient.

  2. Speeding: Driving at high speeds consumes more fuel due to increased aerodynamic drag. Maintaining a moderate and consistent speed can help conserve fuel.

  3. Idling: Leaving the engine running while parked or waiting unnecessarily burns fuel. Turning off the engine when stationary for extended periods can help reduce fuel consumption.

  4. Air Conditioning Usage: Running the air conditioning system at maximum settings can increase fuel consumption. Using the AC sparingly and opting for natural ventilation when possible can save fuel.

  5. Overloading: Carrying excessive weight in the vehicle, such as heavy cargo or unnecessary items, can increase fuel consumption by putting additional strain on the engine. Removing unnecessary weight can improve fuel efficiency.
