How much does a trip from London to Brighton set you back in petrol costs?

The answer: £8.1. In this calculation, we're considering a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's fuel efficiency rated at 37.5 miles per gallon. Carpooling with two passengers reduces the cost per person to £4.05 (£8.1 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £2.7 per passenger (£8.1 divided by 3), and with a full car of four, it's just £2.03 per passenger (£8.1 divided by 4).

Now, let's dissect the numbers behind this. The fuel cost is determined by the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For this journey, you'll need approximately 5.6 liters of fuel. Crunching the figures, that's where the total of £8.1 comes from for the journey from Gloucester to Vale of White Horse.
 

 

Road conditions affect fuel usage for the following reasons:

Surface Roughness: Potholes, fissures, and uneven pavement increase rolling resistance. This makes the tires work harder to maintain speed, increasing fuel consumption.

Tire-road surface friction increases with poor road conditions. Friction causes drag, which makes the engine work harder. Therefore, fuel usage might rise, especially at high speeds.

Traffic Congestion: Heavy traffic causes stops and idling in traffic queues. Constant acceleration and deceleration might increase fuel consumption compared to open roadways.

Elevation Changes: Steep inclines or falls can effect fuel usage, especially for smaller engines. Uphill climbing takes more engine power and petrololine, whereas descending downhill may require more braking and fuel to regulate.

Rain, snow, and ice can impair road traction and vehicle stability. Adjusting speed and driving behavior can affect fuel consumption.

Good pavement and smooth roads use less fuel than rough or badly maintained roads. Smooth roads reduce rolling resistance and improve vehicle efficiency.

Road conditions greatly affect fuel use, so drivers' fuel economy may vary.
