How much does it cost to drive from Bridgend to Suffolk Coastal?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 47.2 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 23.6 quid each (£47.2 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 15.73 quid per person (£47.2 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 11.8 quid per person (£47.2 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 33 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 272.01 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 33 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 Suffolk Coastal: 47.2 quid.

 

 

A lot of things can have a big effect on how much petrol a car uses, but the most common ones are: 

 

  • Driving Habits: Aggressive driving habits like speeding, accelerating quickly, and stopping and starting often can use a lot more petrol. 
     
  • Maintenance on Your Vehicle: Regular oil changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups are all parts of good maintenance that keep your car running at its best. If you don't do upkeep, your car may use more petrol and be less efficient with it. 
     
  • Car Type: Some of the things that affect how much fuel a car uses are its make and model, its engine size, its weight, its aerodynamics, and its fuel economy rating. 
     
  • Conditions of the Road: Things like traffic jams, bad roads, changes in elevation, and the weather can all affect how much petrol you use. It takes more petrol to drive stop-and-go in heavy traffic or uphill than to drive steadily on a highway on flat ground. 
     
  • Importance of Fuel Quality: The octane number and additives in the fuel can affect how well it works. Fuels of lower quality may make engines less efficient and cause them to use more fuel. 
     
  • Route: The path you take can change how much petrol you use. It is possible to use less petrol by choosing roads with slower speed limits, less traffic, and fewer stops. 
     
  • Cargo: Having extra weight in the car, like big cargo or roof racks, makes the aerodynamic drag higher and needs more fuel to keep the speed constant, which means higher fuel use.
