How much does it cost to drive from Christchurch to Cwmbran with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Christchurch to Cwmbran. The journey using petrol will set you back 19.1 pounds. Now, let's walk through how we arrived at this figure.

Firstly, we consider the price of petrol, which is 143 pence per liter. Next, we take into account the car's fuel consumption rate, which stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, suppose you're carpooling. If there are two passengers sharing the ride, each person will contribute 9.55 pounds (£19.1 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 6.37 pounds (£19.1 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 4.78 pounds (£19.1 divided by 4).

Let's delve deeper into the calculations. To determine how much fuel is needed for the trip, we rely on the distance and the car's fuel efficiency. The distance between Christchurch and Cwmbran is approximately 110.1 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 13.3 liters of petrol. We obtained this value by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters.

Once we have the amount of fuel needed, we calculate the total cost. Multiplying the fuel quantity (13.3 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 19.1 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Christchurch to Cwmbran is 19.1 pounds.
 


Diesel cost from Christchurch to Cwmbran.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 12 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 6 £ (12/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 4 £ (12/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 3 £ (12/4) /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.
