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

The trip fueled by petrol comes to £64.3. 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 £32.15 (£64.3/2). For three passengers, the cost per person reduces to £21.43 (£64.3/3), and with four passengers, it further decreases to £16.08 (£64.3/4).

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 370.7 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 370.7 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 44.9 liters of fuel needed.

Next, we calculate the fuel cost by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. With 44.9 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total cost comes to £64.3.

In summary, the fuel cost for the trip from Gloucester to Glenrothes amounts to £64.3.

 

One thing that can affect fuel consumption is the condition of the road for the following reasons:

  1. Surface Roughness: Rough road surfaces, such as those with potholes, cracks, or uneven pavement, can increase rolling resistance. This means the tires have to work harder to maintain speed, leading to higher fuel consumption.

  2. Friction: Poor road conditions can also increase friction between the tires and the road surface. This friction creates drag, which requires the engine to work harder to overcome. As a result, fuel consumption can increase, especially at higher speeds.

  3. Traffic Congestion: Roads with heavy traffic congestion often involve frequent stops and starts, as well as idling in traffic queues. This constant acceleration and deceleration can lead to increased fuel consumption compared to driving on open, free-flowing roads.

  4. Elevation Changes: Roads with steep inclines or declines can affect fuel consumption, especially for vehicles with less powerful engines. Climbing uphill requires more power from the engine and thus more fuel, while descending downhill may require additional braking and fuel to maintain control.

  5. Weather Conditions: Adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, or ice can affect road traction and vehicle stability. Drivers may need to adjust their speed and driving behavior, which can impact fuel consumption.

  6. Surface Quality: Smooth road surfaces with good pavement quality generally result in lower fuel consumption compared to rough or poorly maintained roads. This is because smooth roads reduce rolling resistance and allow for more efficient vehicle operation.

Overall, road conditions play a significant role in determining fuel consumption, and drivers may experience variations in fuel efficiency depending on the condition of the roads they are driving on.
