How much is the expense of driving from Rochdale to Taunton Deane?

The expense of driving from Rochdale to Taunton Deane, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £40.6. 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 £20.3 (£40.6 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £13.53 per passenger (£40.6 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £10.15 per passenger (£40.6 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 Rochdale to Taunton Deane, approximately 28.4 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 233.98 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 £40.6 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.
 

 

Several factors can influence the cost of fuel when driving a car:

  1. Fuel Prices: The cost of fuel itself is a primary determinant of fuel expenses. Fluctuations in global oil prices, local taxes, and market demand can all influence fuel prices.

  2. Fuel Efficiency: The fuel efficiency of the vehicle plays a crucial role in determining fuel costs. Cars with higher fuel efficiency will consume less fuel per mile or kilometer traveled, resulting in lower fuel expenses.

  3. Driving Habits: Personal driving habits, such as aggressive acceleration, speeding, and frequent braking, can significantly impact fuel consumption. Adopting smooth driving practices and maintaining a steady speed can help improve fuel efficiency and reduce costs.

  4. Vehicle Maintenance: Proper maintenance of the vehicle, including regular oil changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups, is essential for optimal fuel efficiency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and increased fuel costs.

  5. Route Selection: The route taken during driving can affect fuel expenses. Opting for routes with lower speed limits, less traffic congestion, and fewer stops can help improve fuel efficiency and reduce costs compared to congested city routes.

  6. Vehicle Weight: Carrying excess weight in the vehicle, such as unnecessary cargo or roof racks, can increase fuel consumption. Removing unnecessary weight can improve fuel efficiency and lower fuel costs.
