Diesel cost from Blackpool to Shepway.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 34 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 17 £ (34/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 11.33 £ (34/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 8.5 £ (34/4) /p.

Diesel cars generally have lower fuel consumption compared to petrol cars for the following reasons:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 steady-state 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.
