How much does it cost to drive from Merthyr Tydfil to Bath and North East Somerset with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Merthyr Tydfil to Bath and North East Somerset. The journey using petrol will set you back 13 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 6.5 pounds (£13 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 4.33 pounds (£13 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 3.25 pounds (£13 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 Merthyr Tydfil and Bath and North East Somerset is approximately 75.2 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 9.1 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 (9.1 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 13 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Bath and North East Somerset is 13 pounds.
 

 

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.
