What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Blackpool to Thanet by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £55. 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 £27.5 (£55/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £18.33 (£55/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £13.75 (£55/4).

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 317.53 miles, this computation entails multiplying 317.53 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 38.5 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 38.5 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £55.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Blackpool to Thanet stands at £55.

 

There are a bunch of reasons why your car drinks up petrol like nobody's business:

  1. How You Drive: If you're always flooring it, slamming on the brakes, or speeding like a maniac, you're gonna burn through petrol faster than if you take it easy.

  2. Car TLC: Keeping your ride in good shape with regular check-ups and stuff like oil changes and tire rotations can help it run more efficiently and sip less petrol.

  3. Car Type: Different cars have different petrol guzzling habits. So, the make, model, and size of your wheels can affect how much fuel you use.

  4. Where You Drive: Traffic jams, potholes, and hills can all suck up more petrol. So, cruising on a smooth highway is gonna be easier on your petrol tank than crawling through city streets.

  5. Fuel Quality: Cheap petrol might save you a few bucks at the pump, but it could end up costing you more in the long run if it's not good quality stuff.

  6. What You Carry: Loading up your car with a ton of stuff, like sports gear or camping gear, can weigh it down and make it thirstier for petrol.
