Fuel consumption models: an evaluation based on a study of Perth's traffic patterns

Pitt, D.R., Lyons, T.J., Newman, P.W.G. and Kenworthy, J.R. (1987) Fuel consumption models: an evaluation based on a study of Perth's traffic patterns. Traffic Engineering & Control, 28 (2). pp. 60-68.

Abstract

A range of mathematical models currently used to predict urban traffic fuel consumption have been evaluated utilising data from an instrumented four-speed manual vehicle. All of the models were calibrated and tested over a data-set especially collected to eliminate such factors as vehicle tune, gradient, gear-changing inconsistencies and uncontrollable environmental factors.
