What's the expense of traveling from Christchurch to Blackwood by car?

If you're using petrol, you're looking at an expense of 21.3 quid. Now, how do we get to that number? Let's break it down.

First off, we need to consider the price of petrol. In this calculation, it's set at 143 pence per liter. Then, we need to know how thirsty your car is. The fuel consumption rate for this ride is 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets divvied up. For two people sharing the ride, it's gonna be 10.65 quid each (£21.3 divided by 2). If you've got three folks in the car, the cost per person comes down to about 7.1 quid (£21.3 divided by 3). And if it's a full house with four passengers, each person chips in 5.33 quid (£21.3 divided by 4).

Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of the calculations. To figure out how much fuel you need for the trip, it's all about distance and fuel efficiency. The distance between Christchurch and Blackwood is about 122.71 miles. So, to cover that distance, your car's gonna need approximately 14.9 liters of petrol. We got that number by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters 'cause that's what we use here.

Once we know how much fuel we need, we can calculate the total cost. Multiply the amount of fuel (14.9 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence), and you get 21.3 quid. So, there you have it, the fuel cost for your journey from Christchurch to Blackwood: 21.3 pounds.
 

 

Things that affect how much petrol costs when you drive a car are 

  • Prices of Fuel: One of the main things that affects fuel costs is the price of fuel itself. Fuel prices can change because of changes in global oil costs, local taxes, and market demand.
  • Route Choice: The path taken while driving can change how much petrol you use. If you want to save money and petrol, choose routes with lower speed limits, fewer stops, and less traffic jams than routes through crowded cities. 
  • Maintenance: For the best petrol mileage, it's important to keep your car in good shape by doing things like changing the oil, rotating the tires, and tuning up the engine on a regular basis. Not doing upkeep can cause your car to use more petrol and cost you more money. 
  • Fuel Efficiency: A big part of how much fuel a car costs is how efficiently it uses fuel. Cars that are more fuel efficient will use less petrol per mile or kilometer, which means that you will spend less on petrol. 
  • Driving Habits: The way you drive, like speeding, accelerating quickly, and stopping a lot, can have a big effect on how much petrol you use. By driving more smoothly and keeping your speed steady, you can save money on petrol and use less of it. 
  • Vehicle Weight: Adding extra weight to your car, like extra goods or roof racks that you don't need, can make it use more petrol. Getting rid of weight that isn't needed can make fuel use more efficient and cut down on fuel costs.
