How much is the expense of driving from Merthyr Tydfil to Northampton?

The expense of driving from Merthyr Tydfil to Northampton, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £25.3. This calculation derives from considering the petrol price as 143 pence per liter and the car's fuel efficiency at 37.5 miles per gallon. When carpooling with two passengers, the cost of the trip per passenger is halved to £12.65 (£25.3 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £8.43 per passenger (£25.3 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £6.33 per passenger (£25.3 divided by 4).

To delve into the details of the calculations, the fuel cost computation is reliant on the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Northampton, approximately 17.7 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 145.94 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting from gallons to liters using the conversion factor of 4.54609 liters per gallon.

Multiplying the fuel needed by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £25.3 for the trip. This breakdown illustrates the impact of various factors, such as fuel price and consumption rate, on the overall cost of the journey, providing insights for individuals planning similar trips and requiring budget estimates.
 

 

Some things that change how much petrol a car uses are

Driving Habits: Aggressive driving habits like speeding, accelerating quickly, and stopping and starting often can use a lot more petrol.

Maintenance on Your Vehicle: Regular oil changes, tyre rotations and engine tune-ups are all parts of good maintenance that keep your car running at its best. If you don't do upkeep, your car may use more petrol and be less efficient with it.

Tyre Pressure: Tyres that aren't properly filled can make them harder to roll and use more petrol. Keeping the right tyre pressure helps the car use less petrol.

Use of the Air Conditioning: Using the air conditioning can make the engine work harder and use more petrol, especially when going in stop-and-go traffic or in the city. Lessening the time you use the AC can help you use less fuel.
