What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Merthyr Tydfil to Hertsmere by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £30.6. 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 £15.3 (£30.6/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £10.2 (£30.6/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £7.65 (£30.6/4).

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 176.5 miles, this computation entails multiplying 176.5 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 21.4 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 21.4 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £30.6.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Merthyr Tydfil to Hertsmere stands at £30.6.


Diesel cost from Merthyr Tydfil to Hertsmere.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 19.3 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 9.65 £ (19.3/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 6.43 £ (19.3/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 4.83 £ (19.3/4) /p.

The main reasons diesel cars use less fuel than petrol cars are:

Diesel engines have higher compression ratios than petrol engines, improving thermal efficiency. Diesel engines extract more energy from each fuel unit due to this increased compression ratio, improving thermal efficiency. Diesel automobiles have superior fuel economy than petrol ones.

Diesel engines create more torque at lower RPM than petrol engines. Diesel vehicles perform better in steady-state driving, requiring less throttle input to maintain speed. Thus, diesel cars have reduced fuel consumption, especially on highways.
