How much does it cost to travel from Merthyr Tydfil to Kingston upon Thames by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £28.5. 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 £14.25 (£28.5/2). With three passengers, the cost reduces to £9.5 per person (£28.5/3). And for four passengers, it further decreases to £7.13 per person (£28.5/4).

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 164.24 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 164.24 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 19.9 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 19.9 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £28.5.

In conclusion, the fuel cost from Merthyr Tydfil to Kingston upon Thames amounts to £28.5.

For 3 passengers: 6 £ (18/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 4.5 £ (18/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and petrol fuel in terms of greater torque at lower RPM:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines typically produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic is due to the inherent design differences between diesel and petrol engines, particularly in their combustion processes and fuel properties. Diesel engines operate on compression ignition, where the air-fuel mixture ignites spontaneously under high pressure and temperature, allowing them to generate high torque even at low RPMs. This characteristic makes diesel vehicles well-suited for tasks requiring high pulling power, such as towing or hauling heavy loads, as they can deliver ample torque at low engine speeds.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol engines generally produce less torque at lower RPMs compared to diesel engines. While petrol engines can also deliver torque, they often require higher engine speeds to reach their maximum torque output. Petrol engines rely on spark ignition, where the air-fuel mixture is ignited by a spark plug, and this combustion process may not generate as much torque at lower engine speeds as compression ignition in diesel engines. However, advancements in petrol engine technology, such as turbocharging and variable valve timing, have improved torque delivery across a broader RPM range in modern petrol vehicles.
