Diesel cost from Gloucester to Shropshire.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 8.4 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 4.2 £ (8.4/2) /p.

For 4 passengers: 2.1 £ (8.4/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and gasoline (petrol) fuel have differences:

  1. Compression Ignition vs. Spark Ignition: Diesel engines operate on compression ignition, where the fuel-air mixture ignites spontaneously due to high pressure and temperature, while petrol engines rely on spark ignition from spark plugs. This fundamental difference in combustion processes leads to different engine designs and performance characteristics.

  2. Fuel Efficiency: Diesel engines tend to be more fuel-efficient than petrol engines, primarily due to their higher compression ratios and thermal efficiency. Diesel engines can extract more energy from each unit of fuel compared to petrol engines, resulting in better fuel economy and lower fuel consumption.
