Driving directions from Chichester to Cumbernauld
How much is the expense of driving from Chichester to Cumbernauld?
The expense of driving from Chichester to Cumbernauld, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £79.5. This calculation derives from considering the petrol price as 143 pence per liter and the car's fuel efficiency at 37.5 miles per gallon. When carpooling with two passengers, the cost of the trip per passenger is halved to £39.75 (£79.5 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £26.5 per passenger (£79.5 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £19.88 per passenger (£79.5 divided by 4).
To delve into the details of the calculations, the fuel cost computation is reliant on the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For the journey from Chichester to Cumbernauld, approximately 55.6 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 458.73 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting from gallons to liters using the conversion factor of 4.54609 liters per gallon.
Multiplying the fuel needed by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £79.5 for the trip. This breakdown illustrates the impact of various factors, such as fuel price and consumption rate, on the overall cost of the journey, providing insights for individuals planning similar trips and requiring budget estimates.
Diesel cost from Chichester to Cumbernauld.
The trip with diesel fuel costs 50.2 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 25.1 £ (50.2/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 16.73 £ (50.2/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 12.55 £ (50.2/4) /p.
Diesel cars generally have lower fuel consumption compared to petrol cars for the following reasons:

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.

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.

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 steadystate 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.
