If you're using petrol, it's gonna set you back 66.5 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 33.25 quid each (£66.5 divided by 2). With three buddies on board, it works out to around 22.17 quid per person (£66.5 divided by 3). And if you've got a full car with four people, it's only 16.63 quid per person (£66.5 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 46.5 liters of fuel. They figured that out by dividing the distance of 383.67 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 46.5 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 Merthyr Tydfil to Cambuslang: 66.5 quid.

 


Diesel cost from Merthyr Tydfil to Cambuslang.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 42 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 21 £ (42/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 14 £ (42/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 10.5 £ (42/4) /p.

When compared to gasoline-powered vehicles, diesel vehicles often have a lower fuel usage percentage for the following reasons:

Diesel fuel has a higher energy density than gasoline, meaning that it contains more energy per litre than gasoline does. Diesel engines are able to create more power and travel further for the same amount of gasoline, which results in a lower overall fuel consumption. This is because diesel engines also travel further.

Diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios than petrol engines, which results in increased thermal efficiency for diesel engines. Because of this increased compression ratio, diesel engines are able to extract a greater amount of energy from each individual dose of fuel. Because of this, diesel engines are often more thermally efficient, which results in a reduction in the amount of fuel these engines consume.

Diesel engines have a tendency to produce higher torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This is because diesel engines are more efficient than petrol engines. Because diesel vehicles require less throttle input to maintain speed, this trait enables diesel vehicles to retain superior fuel efficiency, particularly during steady-state cruising. This is especially true during the cruising phase.

In comparison to their gasoline-powered counterparts, diesel vehicles have a generally lower fuel consumption, which can be attributed to the combined effects of these particular characteristics.
