How much does a trip from London to Brighton set you back in petrol costs?

The answer: £34.7. In this calculation, we're considering a petrol price of 143 pence per liter and a car's fuel efficiency rated at 37.5 miles per gallon. Carpooling with two passengers reduces the cost per person to £17.35 (£34.7 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £11.57 per passenger (£34.7 divided by 3), and with a full car of four, it's just £8.68 per passenger (£34.7 divided by 4).

Now, let's dissect the numbers behind this. The fuel cost is determined by the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For this journey, you'll need approximately 24.3 liters of fuel. Crunching the figures, that's where the total of £34.7 comes from for the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Chorley.
 


Diesel cost from Merthyr Tydfil to Chorley.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 21.9 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 10.95 £ (21.9/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 7.3 £ (21.9/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 5.48 £ (21.9/4) /p.

Fuel efficiency of diesel and petrol: 

Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines use less fuel than petrol ones. Diesel fuel's higher energy density and diesel engines' superior thermal efficiency are the main reasons. Diesel fuel has more energy per litre or gallon than petrol, hence diesel engines can extract more energy. Diesel engines also have larger compression ratios, improving thermal efficiency. Diesel vehicles get better fuel efficiency and travel farther per gallon or litre than petrol vehicles of equal size and performance. 
Fuel efficiency is lower for petrol engines than diesel engines. Petrol is still an effective internal combustion engine fuel, but it has less energy density than diesel. This means petrol engines may need more fuel than diesel engines to function similarly. In recent years, turbocharging and direct injection have increased petrol engine fuel efficiency, closing the gap between petrol and diesel vehicles. 
Due to their higher energy density and thermal efficiency, diesel engines are more fuel-efficient than petrol engines. Diesel and petrol vehicle fuel efficiency can also be affected by driving habits, vehicle design, and other variables.
