How much is the expense of driving from Blackpool to Tunbridge Wells?

The expense of driving from Blackpool to Tunbridge Wells using petrol amounts to £50.1. 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 £25.05 (£50.1 divided by 2). With three passengers, it's approximately £16.7 per person (£50.1 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's £12.53 per person (£50.1 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 35 liters of fuel would be required. Multiplying this by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £50.1 for the trip from Blackpool to Tunbridge Wells.
 

 

The fuel economy is highly sensitive to the state of the vehicle. In this way:

The effectiveness of the engine's fuel combustion and its overall consumption are both improved with regular engine maintenance. Maintaining your engine with routine oil changes, air filter replacements, and tune-ups will keep it running at its best.

Problems with the fuel system, including blocked injectors or a malfunctioning oxygen sensor, can cause petrololine to burn improperly and increase consumption. Preventing such problems requires regular maintenance and rapid repairs.

Problems with tires: When the tires are worn down or not inflated properly, the vehicle has to use more energy (and fuel) to go forward because of the increased rolling resistance. You may enhance your fuel efficiency by changing worn-out tires and keeping them properly inflated.

Aerodynamics: If the body of the vehicle is dented or has panels that aren't flush with the body, airflow will be disrupted and aerodynamic drag will increase, resulting in increased fuel consumption. The best aerodynamic performance is possible with a well-maintained vehicle body.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 31.6 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
