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

Driving from Gloucester to Oldham costs £25.1 with petrol. The calculation assumes a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's petrol consumption of 37.5 miles per gallon. Carpooling with two passengers brings the cost down to £12.55 per person. With three passengers, it's £8.37 per person, and with four passengers, it's £6.28 per person. The fuel cost for the trip is derived from the distance and car fuel consumption, totaling 17.5 liters of fuel. This results in a £25.1 fuel cost for the journey.


One thing that can affect car fuel consumption is the use of air conditioning (AC) for the following reasons:

  1. Engine Load: When the AC is turned on, the compressor in the car's engine needs to work harder to cool and circulate the air. This extra workload can increase the engine's fuel consumption, especially during city driving or when the car is idling.

  2. Drag Effect: Running the AC can also increase aerodynamic drag, particularly at higher speeds. This means the engine needs to work harder to maintain speed, resulting in higher fuel consumption.

  3. Accessory Load: In addition to the AC compressor, other electrical components such as the blower fan and condenser fan also draw power from the engine when the AC is running. This increases the overall electrical load on the engine, leading to higher fuel consumption.

  4. Driving Conditions: The impact of AC on fuel consumption can vary depending on driving conditions. For example, using the AC while driving at lower speeds or in stop-and-go traffic may have a more significant effect on fuel consumption compared to highway driving.

  5. Efficiency Settings: Some cars come equipped with features like "Eco" mode or variable AC compressor speeds, which can help reduce the impact of AC on fuel consumption. Using these features can help optimize fuel efficiency while still keeping the cabin cool.

Overall, while using the AC can increase fuel consumption to some extent, it's often a necessary trade-off for comfort, especially during hot weather. However, minimizing AC usage when possible, such as using the car's ventilation system or rolling down windows at lower speeds, can help mitigate its impact on fuel consumption.
