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

The trip fueled by petrol comes to £46.8. This calculation is based on a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those interested in carpooling, the cost per passenger decreases with more occupants. With two passengers, each person's share is £23.4 (£46.8/2). For three passengers, the cost per person reduces to £15.6 (£46.8/3), and with four passengers, it further decreases to £11.7 (£46.8/4).

To delve deeper into the calculation, let's examine how we arrive at the result:

Firstly, we determine the fuel required by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey of 270.07 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 270.07 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 32.7 liters of fuel needed.

Next, we calculate the fuel cost by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. With 32.7 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total cost comes to £46.8.

In summary, the fuel cost for the trip from Christchurch to Preston amounts to £46.8.

 

The quality of fuel can indeed affect car fuel consumption. The main reasons are:

  1. Fuel Efficiency: High-quality fuel with the proper blend of additives and detergents can help maintain engine cleanliness and efficiency. Clean engines tend to burn fuel more efficiently, resulting in better mileage and lower fuel consumption.

  2. Engine Performance: Lower-quality fuels may contain impurities or inconsistent blends, which can lead to incomplete combustion or engine knocking. This can reduce engine efficiency and increase fuel consumption.

  3. Engine Deposits: Low-quality fuels may leave deposits on engine components such as fuel injectors, intake valves, and combustion chambers. These deposits can interfere with proper fuel delivery and combustion, leading to reduced fuel efficiency and increased consumption.

  4. Emissions: Poor-quality fuels may produce higher levels of harmful emissions, such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. Inefficient combustion due to low-quality fuel can lead to increased emissions and may also affect engine performance and fuel consumption.

  5. Long-term Effects: Continued use of low-quality fuel can result in long-term engine damage and decreased fuel efficiency. Over time, engine deposits can accumulate and impair engine performance, leading to higher fuel consumption and repair costs.

In summary, using high-quality fuel that meets the manufacturer's specifications can help maintain engine efficiency, reduce emissions, and optimize fuel consumption.
