Diesel cost from Gloucester to Croydon.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 13.3 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 6.65 £ (13.3/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 4.43 £ (13.3/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 3.33 £ (13.3/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of fuel efficiency:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines are generally more fuel-efficient than petrol engines. This is primarily due to the higher energy density of diesel fuel and the higher thermal efficiency of diesel engines. Diesel fuel contains more energy per liter or per gallon compared to petrol, allowing diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel. Additionally, diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios, which further improves their thermal efficiency. As a result, diesel vehicles typically achieve better fuel economy and can travel farther on a gallon or liter of fuel compared to petrol vehicles of similar size and performance.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol engines are generally less fuel-efficient than diesel engines. While petrol is still an efficient fuel for internal combustion engines, it typically has a lower energy density compared to diesel fuel. This means that petrol engines may require more fuel to achieve the same level of performance as diesel engines. However, advancements in petrol engine technology, such as turbocharging and direct injection, have improved fuel efficiency in recent years, narrowing the gap between petrol and diesel vehicles.
