The expense for two individuals participating in a carpool is £7.05 (equivalent to 14.1/2) per passenger.
The fare for this journey for three individuals in the vehicle is 4.7 pounds (14.1/3) per passenger.
3.53 pounds (14.1/4) per passenger is the expense of this journey for a car carrying four passengers.


(81.56 miles at 37.5 mpg) x 143 pence per litre for fuel equals 14.1 pounds.

To be more precise, the outcome is as follows:

Fuel Required = Distance / Vehicle Fuel Consumption (in miles multiplied by 4.54609 per vehicle)9.9 litres are consumed (81.56 miles * 4.54609 / 37.5 mpg).

Required fuel = 9.9 lt

Fuel expenses are calculated as follows: 9.9 litres x 143 pence per litre, or 14.1 pounds

14.1 pounds for fuel to get from Gloucester to South Somerset

Diesel fuel has more torque at lower RPM than petrol fuel. 

Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines create higher torque at lower RPM than petrol engines. Due to diesel and petrol engine design variances in combustion processes and fuel characteristics, this occurs. Diesel engines create significant torque at low RPMs due to compression ignition, when the air-fuel mixture spontaneously ignites under high pressure and temperature. Diesel cars can deliver enough of torque at low engine speeds, making them ideal for towing and transporting heavy objects. 
Compared to diesel engines, petrol engines provide less torque at lower RPMs. Petrol engines can produce torque, but they need greater engine speeds. A spark plug ignites the air-fuel mixture in petrol engines, which may not provide as much torque at lower engine speeds as compression ignition in diesel engines. Modern petrol automobiles have enhanced torque delivery across a wider RPM range because to turbocharging and variable valve timing. 
Overall, diesel engines have more torque at lower RPMs than petrol engines due to their combustion processes and engine designs. Diesel cars excel for high-pull and low-speed applications due to this trait.
