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

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Gloucester to Northampton. The journey using petrol will set you back 14.7 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 7.35 pounds (£14.7 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 4.9 pounds (£14.7 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 3.68 pounds (£14.7 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 Northampton is approximately 85.01 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 10.3 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 (10.3 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 14.7 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Gloucester to Northampton is 14.7 pounds.
 

 

The condition of the car can significantly impact fuel consumption. Here's how:

  1. Engine Efficiency: A well-maintained engine operates more efficiently, burning fuel more effectively and consuming less. Regular oil changes, air filter replacements, and tune-ups can ensure optimal engine performance.

  2. Fuel System Health: Issues with the fuel system, such as clogged fuel injectors or a faulty oxygen sensor, can lead to improper fuel combustion and increased consumption. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can help prevent such problems.

  3. Tire Condition: Worn-out or improperly inflated tires increase rolling resistance, requiring more energy (and fuel) to propel the vehicle. Keeping tires properly inflated and replacing worn-out tires can improve fuel efficiency.

  4. Aerodynamics: Damage to the car's body, such as dents or misaligned panels, can disrupt airflow and increase aerodynamic drag, leading to higher fuel consumption. Keeping the car's body in good condition can help maintain optimal aerodynamics.
