What's the expense of traveling from Blackpool to Manchester by car?

The trip fueled by petrol comes to £9. This calculation is based on a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those interested in carpooling, the cost per passenger decreases with more occupants. With two passengers, each person's share is £4.5 (£9/2). For three passengers, the cost per person reduces to £3 (£9/3), and with four passengers, it further decreases to £2.25 (£9/4).

To delve deeper into the calculation, let's examine how we arrive at the result:

Firstly, we determine the fuel required by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey of 51.83 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 51.83 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 6.3 liters of fuel needed.

Next, we calculate the fuel cost by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. With 6.3 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total cost comes to £9.

In summary, the fuel cost for the trip from Blackpool to Manchester amounts to £9.

Diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of emissions:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel combustion generally produces higher levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter compared to petrol combustion. This is due to the combustion characteristics of diesel engines, as well as the composition of diesel fuel. However, advancements in diesel engine technology, such as particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems, have significantly reduced emissions from modern diesel vehicles.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol combustion typically produces lower levels of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter compared to diesel combustion. Petrol engines emit fewer particulates because petrol itself contains fewer impurities compared to diesel. Additionally, petrol engines may emit lower levels of nitrogen oxides due to differences in combustion processes and engine design.
