How much does it cost to travel from Gloucester to Penarth by car?

Fuel for the journey in the form of petrol costs 11.5 pounds. The gasoline price is assumed to be 143 pence per litre in the calculation above, and the vehicle's fuel consumption is 37.5 miles per gallon.
The expense for two individuals participating in a carpool is £5.75 (equivalent to 11.5/2) per passenger.
The fare for this journey for three individuals in the vehicle is 3.83 pounds (11.5/3) per passenger.
2.88 pounds (11.5/4) per passenger is the expense of this journey for a car carrying four passengers.


(66.08 miles at 37.5 mpg) x 143 pence per litre for fuel equals 11.5 pounds.

To be more precise, the outcome is as follows:

Fuel Required = Distance / Vehicle Fuel Consumption (in miles multiplied by 4.54609 per vehicle)8 litres are consumed (66.08 miles * 4.54609 / 37.5 mpg).

Required fuel = 8 lt

Fuel expenses are calculated as follows: 8 litres x 143 pence per litre, or 11.5 pounds

11.5 pounds for fuel to get from Gloucester to Penarth
 

 

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.
