For 4 passengers in the car, the cost of this trip are 18.13 £ (72.5/4) per passenger.


Fuel cost = (418.31 mi / 37.5 mpg) x 143 pence per liter = 72.5 £

In more detail, the result is obtained:

Fuel needed = Distance / Car fuel consumption = miles * 4.54609 / carConsumtion = 418.31 mi * 4.54609 / 37.5 mpg = 50.7 liters

Fuel needed = 50.7 lt

Fuel cost = Fuel needed x Price per liter = 50.7 liters x 143 pence per liter = 72.5 £

Fuel cost from Bridgend to Falkirk = 72.5 £

 

The utilization of air conditioning (AC) might impact automotive fuel efficiency due to the subsequent factors:

Engine Load: Activating the AC causes the compressor in the vehicle's engine to exert more effort in order to cool and distribute the air. The additional burden might augment the engine's fuel consumption, particularly during urban travel or when the vehicle is stationary.

Aerodynamic drag can be increased by running the AC, especially at higher speeds. Consequently, the increased resistance necessitates the engine to exert more effort in order to sustain velocity, leading to elevated fuel consumption.

Accessory Load: Besides the AC compressor, other electrical components like the blower fan and condenser fan also consume electricity from the engine when the AC is in operation. This results in an augmented electrical load on the engine, resulting in increased fuel consumption.

Driving Conditions: The effect of air conditioning (AC) on fuel consumption can differ based on the conditions in which you are driving. Using the air conditioning (AC) while driving at lower speeds or in stop-and-go traffic can have a greater impact on fuel consumption than when traveling on the highway.

Efficiency Settings: Certain vehicles are equipped with features such as "Eco" mode or variable AC compressor speeds, which can effectively mitigate the influence of air conditioning on fuel consumption. Utilizing these characteristics can enhance fuel efficiency while simultaneously maintaining a comfortable temperature inside the cabin.

In general, although utilizing the air conditioning system can slightly elevate fuel consumption, it is frequently a necessary compromise for the sake of comfort, particularly in hot weather. Nevertheless, reducing the use of air conditioning whenever feasible, such as utilizing the car's ventilation system or opening windows at lower velocities, can assist in lessening its influence on fuel consumption.
