How much does it cost to drive from Bridgend to West Dorset with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Bridgend to West Dorset. The journey using petrol will set you back 21 pounds. Now, let's walk through how we arrived at this figure.

Firstly, we consider the price of petrol, which is 143 pence per liter. Next, we take into account the car's fuel consumption rate, which stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, suppose you're carpooling. If there are two passengers sharing the ride, each person will contribute 10.5 pounds (£21 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 7 pounds (£21 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 5.25 pounds (£21 divided by 4).

Let's delve deeper into the calculations. To determine how much fuel is needed for the trip, we rely on the distance and the car's fuel efficiency. The distance between Bridgend and West Dorset is approximately 121.14 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 14.7 liters of petrol. We obtained this value by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters.

Once we have the amount of fuel needed, we calculate the total cost. Multiplying the fuel quantity (14.7 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 21 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Bridgend to West Dorset is 21 pounds.
