August AUTOMOBILE FUEL ECONOMY Potential Effects of Increasing the Corporate Average Fuel Economy Standards to mpg by model year As authorized by the act, the Department of Transportation (DOT) set standards for light trucks for model years security and environmental benefits that would result from improved fuel.

Inhowever, the fuel economy of our theoretical automobile was surpassed by a Toyota 4/5-passenger prototype with a fuel consumption of 1/ km (98mpg). Like our theoretical car, this vehicle has a 3-cylinder direct-injection Diesel engine and a Cited by: Fuel economy statistics.

While the thermal efficiency (mechanical output to chemical energy in fuel) of petroleum engines has increased since the beginning of the automotive era, this is not the only factor in fuel design of automobile as a whole and usage pattern affects the fuel economy.

Over the past 25 years more than 20 major studies have examined the technological potential to improve the fuel economy of passenger cars and light trucks in the United States. The majority have used technology/cost analysis, a combination of analytical methods from the disciplines of economics and automotive engineering.

In this review we describe the key elements of this Cited by: The Improvement of Automobile Fuel Economy by Manjeet Sandhu Abstract In today’s society, it has been determined by energy analysts that fuel consumption is increasing at an alarming rate.

This is due to the large influx of drivers on the road, and the increase in travel demands. Fuel Economy. Federal regulations also mandate automotive fuel economy. The period from to resulted in primary emphasis on emission control with loss of fuel economy from lower compression ratios, changes in spark timing, A/F ratio and.

Going 50 miles per hour up a 7% grade results in a fuel economy penalty of 55%, compared to going 50 mph on a flat road. On a 3% grade this penalty is about 32%. TRENDS IN AUTOMOBILE FUEL ECONOMY Year-to-year trends in fuel economy are the combined effects of trends in all of the parameters which affect fuel economy.

With the cost of gasoline at or near $a gallon, shoppers are paying added attention to new vehicles' EPA fuel-economy ratings. For many motorists, it's become an economic necessity.

The Subaru Rex was launched as the successor to the Subaru R-2 in July The Rex was a hit thanks to the youthful, dynamic image its styling gave it, as well as Subaru's traditional minicar features, including superior handling, driving stability, riding comfort, and fuel economy.

The basic principle with hybrid vehicles is that the different motors work better at different speeds; the electric motor is more efficient at producing torque, or turning. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy estimates for automobile models tested recently predicted a mean of mpg and a standard deviation of mpg for highway driving.
