What's the expense of traveling from Gloucester to Chorley by car?

If you're using petrol, you're looking at an expense of 25.9 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 12.95 quid each (£25.9 divided by 2). If you've got three folks in the car, the cost per person comes down to about 8.63 quid (£25.9 divided by 3). And if it's a full house with four passengers, each person chips in 6.48 quid (£25.9 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 Gloucester and Chorley is about 149.42 miles. So, to cover that distance, your car's gonna need approximately 18.1 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 (18.1 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence), and you get 25.9 quid. So, there you have it, the fuel cost for your journey from Gloucester to Chorley: 25.9 pounds.

Diesel cost from Gloucester to Chorley.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 16.4 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 8.2 £ (16.4/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 5.47 £ (16.4/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 4.1 £ (16.4/4) /p.

Significant factors contributing to diesel cars generally having lower fuel consumption than petrol cars are:

  1. Higher Thermal Efficiency: Diesel engines typically operate at higher compression ratios than petrol engines. This higher compression ratio allows diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel, resulting in greater thermal efficiency. As a result, diesel vehicles can achieve better fuel economy compared to petrol vehicles.

  2. More Torque at Lower RPM: Diesel engines tend to produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic enables diesel vehicles to perform more efficiently during steady-state driving conditions, requiring less throttle input to maintain speed. Consequently, diesel cars often exhibit lower fuel consumption, especially in highway driving scenarios.
