How much does it cost to drive from Blackpool to Llanelli?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 37.7 quid. In this calculation, they're saying the petrol price is 143 pence per liter, and the car's gonna guzzle down 37.5 miles for every gallon of that stuff.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets split up between everyone riding. So, if there are two people in the car, it's gonna be 18.85 quid each (£37.7 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 12.57 quid per person (£37.7 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 9.43 quid per person (£37.7 divided by 4).

Breaking down the numbers, the fuel cost is calculated based on how far you're going and how much gas your car chugs. For this trip, you're gonna need about 26.3 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 217.34 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting that to liters 'cause, you know, the UK uses liters.

So, you take the fuel needed, which is 26.3 liters, and you multiply it by the price per liter, which is 143 pence. And voilà, you got yourself the total fuel cost for the trip from Blackpool to Llanelli: 37.7 quid.

 


Diesel cost from Blackpool to Llanelli.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 23.8 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 11.9 £ (23.8/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 7.93 £ (23.8/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 5.95 £ (23.8/4) /p.

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

  1. Petrol:

    • Petrol typically has an octane rating ranging from 87 to 95 in most markets.

    • Octane rating measures the fuel's resistance to premature detonation or knocking in spark-ignition engines.

    • Higher octane ratings are crucial for high-performance petrol engines with higher compression ratios or turbocharging, as they help prevent engine knocking and allow for more efficient combustion.

  2. Diesel Fuel:

    • Diesel fuel doesn't have an octane rating in the same sense as petrol because it's not used in spark-ignition engines.

    • Diesel engines rely on compression ignition rather than spark ignition, meaning the fuel-air mixture ignites spontaneously due to high pressure and temperature.

    • Therefore, diesel fuel is designed to ignite under the high compression conditions found in diesel engines, and its properties are optimized for this type of combustion rather than for octane rating.

In essence, while petrol relies on octane rating to ensure proper combustion in spark-ignition engines, diesel fuel is formulated to ignite under the high-pressure conditions of compression ignition in diesel engines, rendering octane rating irrelevant for diesel fuel.
