What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Melton to Derbyshire Dales by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £10. In this computational scenario, the price of petrol is assumed to be 143 pence per liter, and the car's fuel efficiency stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For individuals contemplating carpooling arrangements, the expenditure per traveler diminishes as the number of passengers increases. With two passengers, the cost per person amounts to £5 (£10/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £3.33 (£10/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £2.5 (£10/4).

To provide further elucidation on the calculation process, let us dissect how the final figure is derived:

Initially, the requisite fuel quantity is determined by dividing the distance traveled by the car's fuel consumption rate. For a journey spanning 57.52 miles, this computation entails multiplying 57.52 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and subsequently dividing by the car's fuel efficiency of 37.5 mpg, resulting in a requirement of 7 liters of fuel.

Subsequently, the fuel expenditure is computed by multiplying the amount of fuel required by the price per liter. Given a consumption of 7 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £10.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Melton to Derbyshire Dales stands at £10.


Diesel cost from Melton to Derbyshire Dales.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 6.3 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 3.15 £ (6.3/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 2.1 £ (6.3/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 1.58 £ (6.3/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and gasoline (petrol) fuel have differences:

  1. Energy Density: Diesel fuel generally has a higher energy density than petrol. This means that diesel fuel contains more energy per liter or gallon compared to petrol, resulting in diesel engines being able to generate more power and travel further distances on the same volume of fuel.

  2. Octane Rating: Petrol typically has a higher octane rating compared to diesel fuel. Octane rating indicates the fuel's resistance to knocking or pre-ignition in spark-ignition engines. Higher octane ratings are required for petrol engines with higher compression ratios or turbocharging, whereas diesel engines rely on compression ignition and do not use spark plugs.
