Expert Answer:

begin mathsize 12px style Power equals fraction numerator Energy space consumed over denominator Time space taken end fraction  end style
Here, TB = 5 s  TA = 10 s 
Thus, we can see that power is inversely proportional to time so if time increases power will be reduced and if power reduces then energy would be increased. If energy increases then more fuel is consumed.
Thus, the car B will consume more fuel in doing the same amount of work.
