Effects of Vehicle Fuel Economy, Distance Travelled and Vehicle Fuel Load on Amount of Fuel Used | Michael Sivak, UMTRI

The amount of fuel consumed for personal transportation using vehicles with internal combustion engines depends on three major parameters: vehicle fuel economy of the entire fleet, vehicle distance traveled, and vehicle load (occupants carried). In this issue of EL PRO Analysts, Michael Sivak of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute examines (1) the changes in the US in these three parameters between 1970 and 2010, and the effects of those changes on the amounts of fuel consumed, and (2) the potential effects of future changes in these three parameters on reductions of fuel used for personal transportation.
