How much is the expense of driving from Peterborough to Forest Heath?

The expense of driving from Peterborough to Forest Heath, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £7.9. 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 £3.95 (£7.9 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £2.63 per passenger (£7.9 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £1.98 per passenger (£7.9 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 Peterborough to Forest Heath, approximately 5.5 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 45.36 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 £7.9 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.
 

 

Air conditioning (AC) can affect automotive fuel consumption for the following reasons:

Engine Load: The engine compressor works harder to cool and circulate air when the AC is on. In city driving or when idling, this added workload might increase engine fuel consumption.

At high speeds, running the AC increases aerodynamic drag. This makes the engine work harder to maintain speed, increasing fuel consumption.

Accessory Load: When the AC is running, the blower fan and condenser fan also use engine power. Fuel consumption increases as the engine's electrical load grows.

Driving circumstances: AC affects fuel usage differently based on driving circumstances. AC use in stop-and-go traffic or at lower speeds may have a greater impact on fuel usage than highway travel.

Efficiency Settings: "Eco" mode or variable AC compressor speeds can minimize AC's fuel usage in some autos. These features improve fuel efficiency and interior cooling.

AC use might raise fuel consumption, but it's typically worth it for comfort, especially in hot weather. However, using the car's ventilation system or rolling down windows at lower speeds helps reduce AC usage and fuel consumption.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 5 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
