How much does it cost to drive from Middlesbrough to Bedford with petrol?

Let's delve into the expenses of a road trip from Middlesbrough to Bedford. The journey using petrol will set you back 34.7 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 17.35 pounds (£34.7 divided by 2). With three passengers, the cost per person drops to around 11.57 pounds (£34.7 divided by 3). And if there are four passengers onboard, each person chips in 8.68 pounds (£34.7 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 Middlesbrough and Bedford is approximately 200.17 miles. So, to cover this distance, the car will require roughly 24.3 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 (24.3 liters) by the price per liter (143 pence) yields 34.7 pounds. Therefore, the fuel cost for the journey from Middlesbrough to Bedford is 34.7 pounds.
 


Diesel cost from Middlesbrough to Bedford.

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.

When comparing diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of octane rating, there's a significant distinction:

  1. Petrol:

    • Petrol typically has an octane rating ranging from 87 to 95 in most markets.

    • Octane rating measures the fuel's resistance to premature detonation or knocking in spark-ignition engines.

    • Higher octane ratings are crucial for high-performance petrol engines with higher compression ratios or turbocharging, as they help prevent engine knocking and allow for more efficient combustion.

  2. Diesel Fuel:

    • Diesel fuel doesn't have an octane rating in the same sense as petrol because it's not used in spark-ignition engines.

    • Diesel engines rely on compression ignition rather than spark ignition, meaning the fuel-air mixture ignites spontaneously due to high pressure and temperature.

    • Therefore, diesel fuel is designed to ignite under the high compression conditions found in diesel engines, and its properties are optimized for this type of combustion rather than for octane rating.

In essence, while petrol relies on octane rating to ensure proper combustion in spark-ignition engines, diesel fuel is formulated to ignite under the high-pressure conditions of compression ignition in diesel engines, rendering octane rating irrelevant for diesel fuel.
