What's the expense of traveling from Bridgend to Bishopbriggs by car?

If you're using petrol, you're looking at an expense of 70.8 quid. Now, how do we get to that number? Let's break it down.

First off, we need to consider the price of petrol. In this calculation, it's set at 143 pence per liter. Then, we need to know how thirsty your car is. The fuel consumption rate for this ride is 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets divvied up. For two people sharing the ride, it's gonna be 35.4 quid each (£70.8 divided by 2). If you've got three folks in the car, the cost per person comes down to about 23.6 quid (£70.8 divided by 3). And if it's a full house with four passengers, each person chips in 17.7 quid (£70.8 divided by 4).

Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of the calculations. To figure out how much fuel you need for the trip, it's all about distance and fuel efficiency. The distance between Bridgend and Bishopbriggs is about 408.17 miles. So, to cover that distance, your car's gonna need approximately 49.5 liters of petrol. We got that number by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters 'cause that's what we use here.

Once we know how much fuel we need, we can calculate the total cost. Multiply the amount of fuel (49.5 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence), and you get 70.8 quid. So, there you have it, the fuel cost for your journey from Bridgend to Bishopbriggs: 70.8 pounds.
 

 

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.
