What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Bridgend to East Kilbride by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £69.6. In this computational scenario, the price of petrol is assumed to be 143 pence per liter, and the car's fuel efficiency stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For individuals contemplating carpooling arrangements, the expenditure per traveler diminishes as the number of passengers increases. With two passengers, the cost per person amounts to £34.8 (£69.6/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £23.2 (£69.6/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £17.4 (£69.6/4).

To provide further elucidation on the calculation process, let us dissect how the final figure is derived:

Initially, the requisite fuel quantity is determined by dividing the distance traveled by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey spanning 401.2 miles, this computation entails multiplying 401.2 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and subsequently dividing by the car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 mpg, resulting in a requirement of 48.6 liters of fuel.

Subsequently, the fuel expenditure is computed by multiplying the amount of fuel required by the price per liter. Given a consumption of 48.6 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £69.6.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Bridgend to East Kilbride stands at £69.6.

 

There are several reasons that affect fuel consumption when you drive. The most important 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 higher fuel consumption.

  3. Vehicle Specifications: The make and model of the vehicle, engine size, weight, aerodynamics, and fuel efficiency rating all play a role in determining fuel consumption.

  4. Driving Conditions: Factors such as traffic congestion, road conditions, elevation changes, and weather conditions can affect fuel consumption. Stop-and-go driving in heavy traffic or driving uphill requires more fuel compared to steady highway driving on flat terrain.

  5. Fuel Quality: The quality of fuel used, including octane rating and the presence of additives, can impact fuel efficiency. Lower-quality fuels may lead to decreased efficiency and higher consumption.
