What's the expense of traveling from Bridgend to Cheltenham by car?

If you're using petrol, you're looking at an expense of 14.5 quid. Now, how do we get to that number? Let's break it down.

First off, we need to consider the price of petrol. In this calculation, it's set at 143 pence per liter. Then, we need to know how thirsty your car is. The fuel consumption rate for this ride is 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets divvied up. For two people sharing the ride, it's gonna be 7.25 quid each (£14.5 divided by 2). If you've got three folks in the car, the cost per person comes down to about 4.83 quid (£14.5 divided by 3). And if it's a full house with four passengers, each person chips in 3.63 quid (£14.5 divided by 4).

Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of the calculations. To figure out how much fuel you need for the trip, it's all about distance and fuel efficiency. The distance between Bridgend and Cheltenham is about 83.85 miles. So, to cover that distance, your car's gonna need approximately 10.2 liters of petrol. We got that number by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters 'cause that's what we use here.

Once we know how much fuel we need, we can calculate the total cost. Multiply the amount of fuel (10.2 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence), and you get 14.5 quid. So, there you have it, the fuel cost for your journey from Bridgend to Cheltenham: 14.5 pounds.
 


Diesel cost from Bridgend to Cheltenham.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 9.2 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).

For 3 passengers: 3.07 £ (9.2/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 2.3 £ (9.2/4) /p.

The main reasons diesel cars use less fuel than petrol cars are:

Diesel engines have higher compression ratios than petrol engines, improving thermal efficiency. Diesel engines extract more energy from each fuel unit due to this increased compression ratio, improving thermal efficiency. Diesel automobiles have superior fuel economy than petrol ones.

Diesel engines create more torque at lower RPM than petrol engines. Diesel vehicles perform better in steady-state driving, requiring less throttle input to maintain speed. Thus, diesel cars have reduced fuel consumption, especially on highways.
