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

If you're using petrol, you're looking at an expense of 60.4 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 30.2 quid each (£60.4 divided by 2). If you've got three folks in the car, the cost per person comes down to about 20.13 quid (£60.4 divided by 3). And if it's a full house with four passengers, each person chips in 15.1 quid (£60.4 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 Irvine is about 348.19 miles. So, to cover that distance, your car's gonna need approximately 42.2 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 (42.2 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence), and you get 60.4 quid. So, there you have it, the fuel cost for your journey from Gloucester to Irvine: 60.4 pounds.
 


Diesel cost from Gloucester to Irvine.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 38.1 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 19.05 £ (38.1/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 12.7 £ (38.1/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 9.53 £ (38.1/4) /p.

Diesel engines consume less fuel than petrol engines, all else being equal. Diesel fuel's higher energy density and diesel engines' superior thermal efficiency are the main reasons. Diesel fuel has more energy per litre than petrol, and diesel engines utilise that energy more efficiently.

Higher compression ratios improve thermal efficiency and allow diesel engines to extract more energy from each fuel unit. Diesel vehicles get better fuel efficiency and travel farther per gallon or litre than petrol vehicles of equal size and performance.

The choice between diesel and petrol automobiles depends on fuel economy, driving patterns, environmental concerns, and local fuel prices and availability.
