How much does it cost to drive from Bridgend to Birmingham?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 21.4 quid. In this calculation, they're saying the petrol price is 143 pence per liter, and the car's gonna guzzle down 37.5 miles for every gallon of that stuff.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets split up between everyone riding. So, if there are two people in the car, it's gonna be 10.7 quid each (£21.4 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 7.13 quid per person (£21.4 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 5.35 quid per person (£21.4 divided by 4).

Breaking down the numbers, the fuel cost is calculated based on how far you're going and how much gas your car chugs. For this trip, you're gonna need about 15 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 123.46 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting that to liters 'cause, you know, the UK uses liters.

So, you take the fuel needed, which is 15 liters, and you multiply it by the price per liter, which is 143 pence. And voilà, you got yourself the total fuel cost for the trip from Bridgend to Birmingham: 21.4 quid.

 

 

One thing that can affect fuel consumption is the condition of the road for the following reasons:

  1. Surface Roughness: Rough road surfaces, such as those with potholes, cracks, or uneven pavement, can increase rolling resistance. This means the tires have to work harder to maintain speed, leading to higher fuel consumption.

  2. Friction: Poor road conditions can also increase friction between the tires and the road surface. This friction creates drag, which requires the engine to work harder to overcome. As a result, fuel consumption can increase, especially at higher speeds.

  3. Traffic Congestion: Roads with heavy traffic congestion often involve frequent stops and starts, as well as idling in traffic queues. This constant acceleration and deceleration can lead to increased fuel consumption compared to driving on open, free-flowing roads.

  4. Elevation Changes: Roads with steep inclines or declines can affect fuel consumption, especially for vehicles with less powerful engines. Climbing uphill requires more power from the engine and thus more fuel, while descending downhill may require additional braking and fuel to maintain control.

  5. Weather Conditions: Adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, or ice can affect road traction and vehicle stability. Drivers may need to adjust their speed and driving behavior, which can impact fuel consumption.

  6. Surface Quality: Smooth road surfaces with good pavement quality generally result in lower fuel consumption compared to rough or poorly maintained roads. This is because smooth roads reduce rolling resistance and allow for more efficient vehicle operation.

Overall, road conditions play a significant role in determining fuel consumption, and drivers may experience variations in fuel efficiency depending on the condition of the roads they are driving on.
