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

The answer: £67.3. 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 £33.65 (£67.3 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £22.43 per passenger (£67.3 divided by 3), and with a full car of four, it's just £16.83 per passenger (£67.3 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 47.1 liters of fuel. Crunching the figures, that's where the total of £67.3 comes from for the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Musselburgh.
 

 

Mind of the following to protect your car from over fuel consumption.

  1. Engine Condition: Taking care of your engine with regular tune-ups and oil changes keeps it running smoothly, which means it uses fuel more efficiently.

  2. Aerodynamics: The shape of your car matters more than you think. Sleek designs might look cool, but they can create more wind resistance and burn through petrol faster.

  3. Speed: Slow down, speed racer! Driving at high speeds not only puts you at risk of a ticket but also burns up more petrol. Ease off the pedal a bit and watch those fuel savings add up.

  4. Driving Environment: Whether you're cruising down a straight highway or navigating winding roads, your driving environment can affect how much petrol you use. Plus, extreme weather conditions like heavy rain or snow can also impact fuel consumption.

  5. Tire Pressure: Don't forget to check those tire pressures regularly! Properly inflated tires reduce resistance and help your car roll more smoothly, saving you fuel in the process.
