How much does it cost to drive from Bridgend to Torbay?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 25 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 12.5 quid each (£25 divided by 2).

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 17.5 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 144.41 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.

Tire air pressure affects automotive fuel economy because:

Rolling Resistance: Well-inflated tires demand less energy to move. This minimizes engine workload and boosts fuel efficiency. However, underinflated tires increase rolling resistance, making the engine work harder and using more petrololine.

Tires filled to the manufacturer's recommended pressure provide best performance and fuel efficiency. Any tire pressure below or above this suggested range can reduce fuel efficiency.

Uneven tire wear increases rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Regularly checking and maintaining tire pressure helps save tire wear and fuel use.

Properly inflated tires improve handling and stability, especially when cornering and braking. Smoother driving reduces rapid acceleration and braking, improving fuel efficiency.

Environmental Impact: Proper tire pressure improves fuel efficiency, lowers tire wear, and extends tire life. This reduces the environmental impact of tire disposal and manufacture, improving sustainability.

Fuel efficiency, vehicle performance, and safety depend on optimum tire air pressure. Regularly checking and adjusting tire pressure according to manufacturer guidelines saves fuel and reduces environmental impact.
