How much does it cost to travel from Melton to New Forest by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £30.6. In this calculation, we've assumed a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and the car's petrol consumption at 37.5 miles per gallon.

For those considering carpooling, with two passengers, the cost per person is £15.3 (£30.6/2). With three passengers, the cost reduces to £10.2 per person (£30.6/3). And for four passengers, it further decreases to £7.65 per person (£30.6/4).

To break it down further, here's how we arrive at the result:

The fuel required is determined by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption. For a journey of 176.44 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 176.44 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 21.4 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 21.4 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £30.6.

In conclusion, the fuel cost from Melton to New Forest amounts to £30.6.

For 4 passengers: 4.83 £ (19.3/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of fuel efficiency:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines are generally more fuel-efficient than petrol engines. This is primarily due to the higher energy density of diesel fuel and the higher thermal efficiency of diesel engines. Diesel fuel contains more energy per liter or per gallon compared to petrol, allowing diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel. Additionally, diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios, which further improves their thermal efficiency. As a result, diesel vehicles typically achieve better fuel economy and can travel farther on a gallon or liter of fuel compared to petrol vehicles of similar size and performance.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol engines are generally less fuel-efficient than diesel engines. While petrol is still an efficient fuel for internal combustion engines, it typically has a lower energy density compared to diesel fuel. This means that petrol engines may require more fuel to achieve the same level of performance as diesel engines. However, advancements in petrol engine technology, such as turbocharging and direct injection, have improved fuel efficiency in recent years, narrowing the gap between petrol and diesel vehicles.
