Well, using petrol, it's £88.5. The petrol price we're talking about here is 143 pence per liter, and the car guzzles up 37.5 miles per gallon. Now, if you're carpooling with two buddies, each of you only chips in £44.25 for the trip (£88.5 divided by 2). With three mates, it's about £29.5 each (£88.5 divided by 3), and if you've got a full car of four, it's only £22.13 each (£88.5 divided by 4). The fuel cost for the journey is calculated based on how far you're driving and how much fuel your car drinks up. So, for this journey, you'd need about 61.9 liters of fuel. And that's where the £88.5 comes from for the trip from Gloucester to Elgin.

 

There are a bunch of reasons why your car drinks up petrol like nobody's business:

  1. How You Drive: If you're always flooring it, slamming on the brakes, or speeding like a maniac, you're gonna burn through petrol faster than if you take it easy.

  2. Car TLC: Keeping your ride in good shape with regular check-ups and stuff like oil changes and tire rotations can help it run more efficiently and sip less petrol.

  3. Car Type: Different cars have different petrol guzzling habits. So, the make, model, and size of your wheels can affect how much fuel you use.

  4. Where You Drive: Traffic jams, potholes, and hills can all suck up more petrol. So, cruising on a smooth highway is gonna be easier on your petrol tank than crawling through city streets.

  5. Fuel Quality: Cheap petrol might save you a few bucks at the pump, but it could end up costing you more in the long run if it's not good quality stuff.

  6. What You Carry: Loading up your car with a ton of stuff, like sports gear or camping gear, can weigh it down and make it thirstier for petrol.
