How much does it cost to drive from Gloucester to Basildon with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Gloucester to Basildon. The journey using petrol will set you back 24.5 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 12.25 pounds (£24.5 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 8.17 pounds (£24.5 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 6.13 pounds (£24.5 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 Gloucester and Basildon is approximately 141.09 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 17.1 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 (17.1 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 24.5 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Gloucester to Basildon is 24.5 pounds.
 

 

The cost of fuel when driving a car is influenced by various factors. These include the distance covered, the driving conditions (such as traffic congestion, slow-paced driving, regular driving, or aggressive driving), the fuel efficiency of the vehicle, the vehicle's condition, prevailing weather conditions, and the current price of fuel. Each of these elements can impact fuel expenses and should be considered when estimating the overall cost of driving.
