How much does it cost to drive from Christchurch to Caerphilly?

The trip with petrol fuel costs 21.7 £. In the above calculation, the petrol price is considered to be 143 pence per liter and the petrol consumption of the car is 37.5 miles per gallon.
For 2 passengers in carpooling, the cost of this trip is 10.85 £ (21.7/2) per passenger.
For 3 passengers in the car, the cost of this trip is 7.23 £ (21.7/3) per passenger.
For 4 passengers in the car, the cost of this trip are 5.43 £ (21.7/4) per passenger.


Fuel cost = (125.05 mi / 37.5 mpg) x 143 pence per liter = 21.7 £

In more detail, the result is obtained:

Fuel needed = Distance / Car fuel consumption = miles * 4.54609 / carConsumtion = 125.05 mi * 4.54609 / 37.5 mpg = 15.2 liters

Fuel needed = 15.2 lt

Fuel cost = Fuel needed x Price per liter = 15.2 liters x 143 pence per liter = 21.7 £

Fuel cost from Christchurch to Caerphilly = 21.7 £

 

One thing that can affect car fuel consumption is tire air pressure for the following reasons:

  1. Rolling Resistance: Properly inflated tires have less rolling resistance, meaning they require less energy to keep the vehicle moving. This reduces the workload on the engine and improves fuel efficiency. On the other hand, under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance, forcing the engine to work harder and consuming more fuel.

  2. Optimal Performance: Tires that are inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure level ensure optimal performance and fuel efficiency. Deviating from this recommended pressure level, either by under-inflating or over-inflating the tires, can lead to decreased fuel efficiency.

  3. Tire Wear: Improper tire inflation can cause uneven tire wear, which can further increase rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Regularly checking and maintaining proper tire pressure can help prevent premature tire wear and maintain fuel efficiency.

  4. Handling and Stability: Properly inflated tires also contribute to better handling and stability, especially during cornering and braking. This can lead to smoother driving, which in turn can help improve fuel efficiency by reducing the need for sudden acceleration or braking maneuvers.

  5. Environmental Impact: Maintaining proper tire pressure is not only beneficial for fuel efficiency but also reduces tire wear and extends tire life. This helps reduce the environmental impact associated with tire disposal and manufacturing, contributing to overall sustainability.

Overall, maintaining proper tire air pressure is essential for optimal fuel efficiency, vehicle performance, and safety. Regularly checking and adjusting tire pressure according to the manufacturer's recommendations can help drivers save fuel and reduce their environmental footprint.
