How much does it cost to drive from Merthyr Tydfil to Wirral with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Merthyr Tydfil to Wirral. The journey using petrol will set you back 25.1 pounds. Now, let's walk through how we arrived at this figure.

Firstly, we consider the price of petrol, which is 143 pence per liter. Next, we take into account the car's fuel consumption rate, which stands at 37.5 miles per gallon.

Now, suppose you're carpooling. If there are two passengers sharing the ride, each person will contribute 12.55 pounds (£25.1 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 8.37 pounds (£25.1 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 6.28 pounds (£25.1 divided by 4).

Let's delve deeper into the calculations. To determine how much fuel is needed for the trip, we rely on the distance and the car's fuel efficiency. The distance between Merthyr Tydfil and Wirral is approximately 145.05 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 17.6 liters of petrol. We obtained this value by dividing the distance by the car's fuel consumption rate of 37.5 miles per gallon and then converting it to liters.

Once we have the amount of fuel needed, we calculate the total cost. Multiplying the fuel quantity (17.6 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 25.1 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Merthyr Tydfil to Wirral is 25.1 pounds.
 


Diesel cost from Merthyr Tydfil to Wirral.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 15.9 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 7.95 £ (15.9/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 5.3 £ (15.9/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 3.98 £ (15.9/4) /p.

Diesel fuel and gasoline (petrol) fuel have differences:

  1. Emissions: Diesel fuel combustion typically produces higher levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter compared to petrol combustion. However, advancements in diesel engine technology, such as particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems, have significantly reduced emissions from modern diesel vehicles.

  2. Availability and Pricing: The availability and pricing of diesel fuel and petrol can vary by region and depend on factors such as government subsidies, taxes, and infrastructure. In some regions, diesel fuel may be more readily available or cheaper than petrol, influencing consumer choices and vehicle preferences.
