How much is the expense of driving from Wakefield to County Durham?

The expense of driving from Wakefield to County Durham, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £15.6. 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 £7.8 (£15.6 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £5.2 per passenger (£15.6 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £3.9 per passenger (£15.6 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 Wakefield to County Durham, approximately 10.9 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 90.05 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 £15.6 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.
 

 

There are several reasons that affect fuel consumption when you drive. The most important are:

  1. Driving Habits: Aggressive driving behaviors such as rapid acceleration, speeding, and frequent braking can significantly increase fuel consumption.

  2. Vehicle Maintenance: Proper maintenance, including regular oil changes, tire rotations, and engine tune-ups, ensures optimal fuel efficiency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and higher fuel consumption.

  3. Vehicle Specifications: The make and model of the vehicle, engine size, weight, aerodynamics, and fuel efficiency rating all play a role in determining fuel consumption.

  4. Driving Conditions: Factors such as traffic congestion, road conditions, elevation changes, and weather conditions can affect fuel consumption. Stop-and-go driving in heavy traffic or driving uphill requires more fuel compared to steady highway driving on flat terrain.

  5. Fuel Quality: The quality of fuel used, including octane rating and the presence of additives, can impact fuel efficiency. Lower-quality fuels may lead to decreased efficiency and higher consumption.
