How much does it cost to travel from Bridgend to Blackwood by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £4.9. 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.

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 28.45 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 28.45 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 3.4 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 3.4 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £4.9.

In conclusion, the fuel cost from Bridgend to Blackwood amounts to £4.9.

 

Some things that affect car fuel consumption are:

  1. Driving Habits: Aggressive driving behaviors such as rapid acceleration, speeding, and frequent braking can significantly increase fuel consumption.

  2. Vehicle Maintenance: Proper maintenance, including regular oil changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups, ensures optimal fuel efficiency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and increased fuel consumption.

  3. Tire Pressure: Improperly inflated tires can increase rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Maintaining proper tire pressure helps optimize fuel efficiency.

  4. Air Conditioning Usage: Running the air conditioning system can increase engine load and fuel consumption, especially in stop-and-go traffic or during city driving. Minimizing AC usage when possible can help reduce fuel consumption.
