How much does it cost to drive from Blackpool to Thurrock?

Well, using petrol, it's £45.2. The petrol price we're talking about here is 143 pence per liter, and the car guzzles up 37.5 miles per gallon. Now, if you're carpooling with two buddies, each of you only chips in £22.6 for the trip (£45.2 divided by 2). With three mates, it's about £15.07 each (£45.2 divided by 3), and if you've got a full car of four, it's only £11.3 each (£45.2 divided by 4). The fuel cost for the journey is calculated based on how far you're driving and how much fuel your car drinks up. So, for this journey, you'd need about 31.6 liters of fuel. And that's where the £45.2 comes from for the trip from Blackpool to Thurrock.

 

Some factors that can impact how much petrol your car consumes, are:

  1. Tire Pressure: Believe it or not, keeping your tires properly inflated can make a big difference. Under-inflated tires create more resistance and require more fuel to keep your car rolling smoothly.

  2. Speed: Zooming along at high speeds might be fun, but it's also a surefire way to guzzle petrol. Slowing down a bit can save you some serious cash at the pump.

  3. Engine Condition: A well-maintained engine runs more efficiently, so make sure you're keeping up with those regular tune-ups and oil changes to keep your petrol usage in check.

  4. Aerodynamics: The shape of your car can affect how much wind resistance it encounters, which in turn affects fuel consumption. Sporty cars with sleek designs might look cool, but they often have higher drag and use more petrol.

  5. Driving Environment: Whether you're cruising on flat highways or tackling hilly terrain, your driving environment can impact fuel consumption. Plus, driving in extreme weather conditions like heavy rain or snow can also affect how much petrol you use.
