How much does it cost to drive from Merthyr Tydfil to Telford and Wrekin?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 17.7 quid. In this calculation, they're saying the petrol price is 143 pence per liter, and the car's gonna guzzle down 37.5 miles for every gallon of that stuff.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets split up between everyone riding. So, if there are two people in the car, it's gonna be 8.85 quid each (£17.7 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 5.9 quid per person (£17.7 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 4.43 quid per person (£17.7 divided by 4).

Breaking down the numbers, the fuel cost is calculated based on how far you're going and how much gas your car chugs. For this trip, you're gonna need about 12.4 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 102.05 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting that to liters 'cause, you know, the UK uses liters.

So, you take the fuel needed, which is 12.4 liters, and you multiply it by the price per liter, which is 143 pence. And voilà, you got yourself the total fuel cost for the trip from Merthyr Tydfil to Telford and Wrekin: 17.7 quid.

 

 

One thing that can affect car fuel consumption is tire air pressure for the following reasons:

  1. Rolling Resistance: Properly inflated tires have less rolling resistance, meaning they require less energy to keep the vehicle moving. This reduces the workload on the engine and improves fuel efficiency. On the other hand, under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance, forcing the engine to work harder and consuming more fuel.

  2. Optimal Performance: Tires that are inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure level ensure optimal performance and fuel efficiency. Deviating from this recommended pressure level, either by under-inflating or over-inflating the tires, can lead to decreased fuel efficiency.

  3. Tire Wear: Improper tire inflation can cause uneven tire wear, which can further increase rolling resistance and fuel consumption. Regularly checking and maintaining proper tire pressure can help prevent premature tire wear and maintain fuel efficiency.

  4. Handling and Stability: Properly inflated tires also contribute to better handling and stability, especially during cornering and braking. This can lead to smoother driving, which in turn can help improve fuel efficiency by reducing the need for sudden acceleration or braking maneuvers.

  5. Environmental Impact: Maintaining proper tire pressure is not only beneficial for fuel efficiency but also reduces tire wear and extends tire life. This helps reduce the environmental impact associated with tire disposal and manufacturing, contributing to overall sustainability.

Overall, maintaining proper tire air pressure is essential for optimal fuel efficiency, vehicle performance, and safety. Regularly checking and adjusting tire pressure according to the manufacturer's recommendations can help drivers save fuel and reduce their environmental footprint.
