How much is the expense of driving from Blackpool to Croydon?

The expense of driving from Blackpool to Croydon using petrol amounts to £43.5. This computation is based on a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 miles per gallon. For those considering carpooling arrangements, the cost per passenger decreases with more occupants. With two passengers, the cost per person is £21.75 (£43.5 divided by 2). With three passengers, it's approximately £14.5 per person (£43.5 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's £10.88 per person (£43.5 divided by 4).

To delve deeper into the calculations, we can explore the fuel cost calculation. This is determined by the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For this journey, approximately 30.4 liters of fuel would be required. Multiplying this by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £43.5 for the trip from Blackpool to Croydon.
 


Diesel cost from Blackpool to Croydon.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 27.4 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 13.7 £ (27.4/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 9.13 £ (27.4/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 6.85 £ (27.4/4) /p.

When comparing diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of octane rating, there's a significant distinction:

  1. Petrol (Gasoline): Typically has an octane rating between 87 and 95, crucial for preventing engine knocking in spark-ignition engines.

  2. Diesel Fuel: Doesn't have an octane rating as it's not used in spark-ignition engines. Diesel engines rely on compression ignition, so diesel fuel is formulated to ignite under high pressure, making octane rating irrelevant for diesel fuel.
