What is the financial outlay associated with traveling from Sandwell to Wigan by car?

The journey, powered by petrol, incurs a cost of £14.4. 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 £7.2 (£14.4/2). For a trio of passengers, the cost per person reduces to £4.8 (£14.4/3), and for a quartet of passengers, it further decreases to £3.6 (£14.4/4).

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 83.28 miles, this computation entails multiplying 83.28 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 10.1 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 10.1 liters of fuel at a rate of 143 pence per liter, the cumulative cost equals £14.4.

In summation, the total fuel expenditure for the trip from Sandwell to Wigan stands at £14.4.


Diesel cost from Sandwell to Wigan.

The trip with diesel fuel costs 9.1 £ (151p/lt, 62.7 mpg).
For 2 passengers: 4.55 £ (9.1/2) /p.
For 3 passengers: 3.03 £ (9.1/3) /p.
For 4 passengers: 2.28 £ (9.1/4) /p.

Diesel cars generally have lower fuel consumption compared to petrol cars for the following reasons:

  1. Higher Energy Density of Diesel Fuel: Diesel fuel contains more energy per liter compared to petrol. This means that for the same volume of fuel, diesel engines can generate more power and travel a greater distance, resulting in lower fuel consumption.

  2. Increased Thermal Efficiency of Diesel Engines: Diesel engines operate at higher compression ratios compared to petrol engines. This higher compression ratio allows diesel engines to extract more energy from each unit of fuel. As a result, diesel engines are typically more thermally efficient, translating into lower fuel consumption.

  3. Greater Torque at Lower RPM: Diesel engines tend to produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic allows diesel vehicles to maintain better fuel efficiency, particularly during steady-state cruising, as they require less throttle input to maintain speed.

These factors combined contribute to the generally lower fuel consumption observed in diesel cars compared to their petrol counterparts.
