How much does it cost to travel from Middlesbrough to Birmingham by car?

The journey, fueled by petrol, comes to £30.2. 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 £15.1 (£30.2/2). With three passengers, the cost reduces to £10.07 per person (£30.2/3). And for four passengers, it further decreases to £7.55 per person (£30.2/4).

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 174.29 miles, this calculation involves multiplying 174.29 miles by 4.54609 (liters per gallon) and dividing by the car's consumption of 37.5 mpg, resulting in 21.1 liters of fuel needed.

The fuel cost is then calculated by multiplying the fuel needed by the price per liter. For 21.1 liters of fuel at 143 pence per liter, the total comes to £30.2.

Diesel engines vs petrol engines:

  • Spark Ignition (Petrol Engines): In petrol engines, the ignition process begins with the introduction of an air-fuel mixture into the combustion chamber. A spark plug then generates a high-voltage electrical spark, which ignites the compressed air-fuel mixture, initiating combustion. This method is known as spark ignition, as the spark plug plays a crucial role in igniting the mixture.

  • Compression Ignition (Diesel Engines): Diesel engines operate on a different principle known as compression ignition. In these engines, air is compressed within the combustion chamber to a high temperature and pressure by the upward movement of the piston. This compression causes the diesel fuel, injected into the combustion chamber, to ignite spontaneously without the need for a spark plug. The high pressure and temperature created during compression cause the diesel fuel to combust, driving the power stroke of the engine.
