What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Merthyr Tydfil to Dumfries by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £56.6. In this computational scenario, the price of petrol is assumed to be 143 pence per liter, and the car's fuel efficiency stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For individuals contemplating carpooling arrangements, the expenditure per traveler diminishes as the number of passengers increases. With two passengers, the cost per person amounts to £28.3 (£56.6/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £18.87 (£56.6/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £14.15 (£56.6/4).

To provide further elucidation on the calculation process, let us dissect how the final figure is derived:

Initially, the requisite fuel quantity is determined by dividing the distance traveled by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey spanning 326.23 miles, this computation entails multiplying 326.23 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and subsequently dividing by the car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 mpg, resulting in a requirement of 39.5 liters of fuel.

Subsequently, the fuel expenditure is computed by multiplying the amount of fuel required by the price per liter. Given a consumption of 39.5 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £56.6.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Merthyr Tydfil to Dumfries stands at £56.6.

 

The cost of fuel when driving a car is influenced by various factors. These include the distance covered, the driving conditions (such as traffic congestion, slow-paced driving, regular driving, or aggressive driving), the fuel efficiency of the vehicle, the vehicle's condition, prevailing weather conditions, and the current price of fuel. Each of these elements can impact fuel expenses and should be considered when estimating the overall cost of driving.
