    Usage of by and with

    Is it correct to say:

    The singer has finished the concert by his latest song.

    I have bought olive oil by liter.

    My friend has come to work by a taxi.

    Don't compare me with others.


    My comment:


    Actually, I have a problem with the preposition by and with. I don't know how to use them properly.

    My friend has come to work by taxi. No article.

    Don't compare me with others. Correct.
