What's the expense of traveling from Gloucester to Bathgate by car?

The trip fueled by petrol comes to £57.7. 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 £28.85 (£57.7/2). For three passengers, the cost per person reduces to £19.23 (£57.7/3), and with four passengers, it further decreases to £14.43 (£57.7/4).

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 332.96 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 332.96 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 40.4 liters of fuel needed.

Next, we calculate the fuel cost by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. With 40.4 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total cost comes to £57.7.

In summary, the fuel cost for the trip from Gloucester to Bathgate amounts to £57.7.

 

Some factors that can impact how much petrol your car consumes, are:

  1. Tire Pressure: Believe it or not, keeping your tires properly inflated can make a big difference. Under-inflated tires create more resistance and require more fuel to keep your car rolling smoothly.

  2. Speed: Zooming along at high speeds might be fun, but it's also a surefire way to guzzle petrol. Slowing down a bit can save you some serious cash at the pump.

  3. Engine Condition: A well-maintained engine runs more efficiently, so make sure you're keeping up with those regular tune-ups and oil changes to keep your petrol usage in check.

  4. Aerodynamics: The shape of your car can affect how much wind resistance it encounters, which in turn affects fuel consumption. Sporty cars with sleek designs might look cool, but they often have higher drag and use more petrol.

  5. Driving Environment: Whether you're cruising on flat highways or tackling hilly terrain, your driving environment can impact fuel consumption. Plus, driving in extreme weather conditions like heavy rain or snow can also affect how much petrol you use.
