How much is the expense of driving from Merthyr Tydfil to Christchurch?

The expense of driving from Merthyr Tydfil to Christchurch, using petrol as the fuel source, amounts to £24.1. This calculation derives from considering the petrol price as 143 pence per liter and the car's fuel efficiency at 37.5 miles per gallon. When carpooling with two passengers, the cost of the trip per passenger is halved to £12.05 (£24.1 divided by 2). With three passengers, the expense drops to approximately £8.03 per passenger (£24.1 divided by 3), and with four passengers, it's reduced further to £6.03 per passenger (£24.1 divided by 4).

To delve into the details of the calculations, the fuel cost computation is reliant on the distance traveled and the car's fuel consumption rate. For the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Christchurch, approximately 16.9 liters of fuel would be required. This amount is determined by dividing the distance of 139.19 miles by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon, and then converting from gallons to liters using the conversion factor of 4.54609 liters per gallon.

Multiplying the fuel needed by the petrol price per liter results in the total fuel cost of £24.1 for the trip. This breakdown illustrates the impact of various factors, such as fuel price and consumption rate, on the overall cost of the journey, providing insights for individuals planning similar trips and requiring budget estimates.

For 4 passengers: 3.8 £ (15.2/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and gasoline (gasoline) fuel in terms of how well they use fuel: 

Diesel Fuel: In general, diesel engines use less gas than petrol engines. This is mostly because diesel fuel has a higher energy density and diesel engines are better at using heat. Compared to gasoline, diesel fuel has more energy per litre or gallon. This means that diesel engines can get more energy from each unit of fuel. Diesel engines also have higher compression ratios, which makes them even more thermally efficient. Because of this, diesel cars usually get better gas mileage and can go farther on a gallon or litre of gas than gasoline cars of the same size and speed. 
Petrol (petrol): Diesel engines use less fuel than petrol engines in general. Even though gas is still a good fuel for internal combustion engines, diesel fuel usually has a higher energy density. This suggests that gas engines might need more fuel to work as well as diesel engines. The difference between petrol and diesel cars has become smaller, though, thanks to improvements in petrol engine technology like turbocharging and direct injection. 
Overall, both diesel and gasoline engines can be used to get good gas mileage, but diesel engines tend to be better because they store energy more efficiently and cool down faster. But how people drive, how the car is built, and other things can also affect how much fuel a diesel or gas car uses.
