How much does it cost to travel from Blackpool to Watford by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £38.6. In this calculation, we've assumed a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's petrol consumption at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those considering carpooling, with two passengers, the cost per person is £19.3 (£38.6/2). With three passengers, the cost reduces to £12.87 per person (£38.6/3). And for four passengers, it further decreases to £9.65 per person (£38.6/4).

To break it down further, here's how we arrive at the result:

The fuel required is determined by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption. For a journey of 222.75 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 222.75 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 27 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 27 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £38.6.

In conclusion, the fuel cost from Blackpool to Watford amounts to £38.6.


Road conditions affect fuel usage for the following reasons:

Surface Roughness: Potholes, fissures, and uneven pavement increase rolling resistance. This makes the tires work harder to maintain speed, increasing fuel consumption.

Tire-road surface friction increases with poor road conditions. Friction causes drag, which makes the engine work harder. Therefore, fuel usage might rise, especially at high speeds.

Traffic Congestion: Heavy traffic causes stops and idling in traffic queues. Constant acceleration and deceleration might increase fuel consumption compared to open roadways.

Elevation Changes: Steep inclines or falls can effect fuel usage, especially for smaller engines. Uphill climbing takes more engine power and petrololine, whereas descending downhill may require more braking and fuel to regulate.

Rain, snow, and ice can impair road traction and vehicle stability. Adjusting speed and driving behavior can affect fuel consumption.

Good pavement and smooth roads use less fuel than rough or badly maintained roads. Smooth roads reduce rolling resistance and improve vehicle efficiency.

Road conditions greatly affect fuel use, so drivers' fuel economy may vary.
