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

The journey from Bridgend to Tendring by car comes with a price tag of £43.3 if you're using petrol. Let's break it down. The petrol price we're talking about here is 143 pence per liter, and the car chugs along at 37.5 miles per gallon. Now, if you're thinking about carpooling with a couple of mates, each of you only has to fork out £21.65 for the trip (£43.3 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it's about £14.43 each (£43.3 divided by 3), and if you've got a full car of four, it's just £10.83 each (£43.3 divided by 4). So, that's the financial aspect of the journey.

Now, let's dive into the nitty-gritty of how we got these figures. The fuel cost calculation is based on how far you're traveling and how thirsty your car is. For this journey, you'd need about 30.3 liters of fuel. And that's where the £43.3 comes from for the trip from Bridgend to Tendring.

In summary, the total fuel cost for the journey is £43.3, factoring in the distance, petrol price, and car fuel consumption. Whether you're flying solo or sharing the ride with friends, knowing the breakdown of these costs can help you plan your trip and budget accordingly.


One thing that can affect car fuel consumption is the use of air conditioning (AC) for the following reasons:

  1. Engine Load: When the AC is turned on, the compressor in the car's engine needs to work harder to cool and circulate the air. This extra workload can increase the engine's fuel consumption, especially during city driving or when the car is idling.

  2. Drag Effect: Running the AC can also increase aerodynamic drag, particularly at higher speeds. This means the engine needs to work harder to maintain speed, resulting in higher fuel consumption.

  3. Accessory Load: In addition to the AC compressor, other electrical components such as the blower fan and condenser fan also draw power from the engine when the AC is running. This increases the overall electrical load on the engine, leading to higher fuel consumption.

  4. Driving Conditions: The impact of AC on fuel consumption can vary depending on driving conditions. For example, using the AC while driving at lower speeds or in stop-and-go traffic may have a more significant effect on fuel consumption compared to highway driving.

  5. Efficiency Settings: Some cars come equipped with features like "Eco" mode or variable AC compressor speeds, which can help reduce the impact of AC on fuel consumption. Using these features can help optimize fuel efficiency while still keeping the cabin cool.

Overall, while using the AC can increase fuel consumption to some extent, it's often a necessary trade-off for comfort, especially during hot weather. However, minimizing AC usage when possible, such as using the car's ventilation system or rolling down windows at lower speeds, can help mitigate its impact on fuel consumption.
