How much does it cost to drive from Melton to Cumbernauld?

If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 53.3 quid. In this calculation, they're saying the petrol price is 143 pence per liter, and the car's gonna guzzle down 37.5 miles for every gallon of that stuff.

Now, if you're carpooling, the cost gets split up between everyone riding. So, if there are two people in the car, it's gonna be 26.65 quid each (£53.3 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 17.77 quid per person (£53.3 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 13.33 quid per person (£53.3 divided by 4).

Breaking down the numbers, the fuel cost is calculated based on how far you're going and how much gas your car chugs. For this trip, you're gonna need about 37.3 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 307.48 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting that to liters 'cause, you know, the UK uses liters.

So, you take the fuel needed, which is 37.3 liters, and you multiply it by the price per liter, which is 143 pence. And voilà, you got yourself the total fuel cost for the trip from Melton to Cumbernauld: 53.3 quid.


Diesel cost from Melton to Cumbernauld.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 33.7 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 16.85 £ (33.7/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 11.23 £ (33.7/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 8.43 £ (33.7/4) /p.

Diesel cars generally have lower fuel consumption compared to petrol cars for the following reasons:

  1. Higher Energy Density of Diesel Fuel: Diesel fuel contains more energy per liter compared to petrol. This means that for the same volume of fuel, diesel engines can generate more power and travel a greater distance, resulting in lower fuel consumption.

  2. Increased Thermal Efficiency of Diesel Engines: Diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios compared to petrol engines. This higher compression ratio allows diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel. As a result, diesel engines are typically more thermally efficient, translating into lower fuel consumption.

  3. Greater Torque at Lower RPM: Diesel engines tend to produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic allows diesel vehicles to maintain better fuel efficiency, particularly during steady-state cruising, as they require less throttle input to maintain speed.

These factors combined contribute to the generally lower fuel consumption observed in diesel cars compared to their petrol counterparts.
