How much does it cost to drive from Bearsden to Taunton Deane with petrol?
Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Bearsden to Taunton Deane. The journey using petrol will set you back 73.8 pounds. Now, let's walk through how we arrived at this figure.
Firstly, we consider the price of petrol, which is 143 pence per liter. Next, we take into account the car's fuel consumption rate, which stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.
Now, suppose you're carpooling. If there are two passengers sharing the ride, each person will contribute 36.9 pounds (£73.8 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 24.6 pounds (£73.8 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 18.45 pounds (£73.8 divided by 4).
Let's delve deeper into the calculations. To determine how much fuel is needed for the trip, we rely on the distance and the car's fuel efficiency. The distance between Bearsden and Taunton Deane is approximately 425.56 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 51.6 liters of petrol. We obtained this value by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters.
Once we have the amount of fuel needed, we calculate the total cost. Multiplying the fuel quantity (51.6 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 73.8 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Bearsden to Taunton Deane is 73.8 pounds.
Diesel cost from Bearsden to Taunton Deane.
The trip with diesel fuel costs 46.6 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 23.3 £ (46.6/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 15.53 £ (46.6/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 11.65 £ (46.6/4) /p.
Diesel cars generally have lower fuel consumption compared to petrol cars for the following reasons:

Higher Energy Density of Diesel Fuel: Diesel fuel contains more energy per liter compared to petrol. This means that for the same volume of fuel, diesel engines can generate more power and travel a greater distance, resulting in lower fuel consumption.

Increased Thermal Efficiency of Diesel Engines: Diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios compared to petrol engines. This higher compression ratio allows diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel. As a result, diesel engines are typically more thermally efficient, translating into lower fuel consumption.

Greater Torque at Lower RPM: Diesel engines tend to produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic allows diesel vehicles to maintain better fuel efficiency, particularly during steadystate cruising, as they require less throttle input to maintain speed.
These factors combined contribute to the generally lower fuel consumption observed in diesel cars compared to their petrol counterparts.
