    The report documents revisions made to the Wharton EFA Automobile Demand Model to produce the Wharton EFA Motor Vehicle Demand Model (Mark I). the mpg rating of the vehicle would be higher than if the vehicle operated on gasoline. or propane fuel is one of many potentially cost-effective strategies for reducing a local government's. Assessment of Technologies and Approaches for Reducing the Fuel Consumption of Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles, Phase 2 Examine other vehicle technologies, including aerodynamic drag reduction, improved efficiency of accessories such as alternators, and the conversion of engine-driven equipment to electricity (e.g., HVAC, fans, and water.

    Ethanol could play an important role in reducing petroleum consumption by enabling a substantial increase in the fuel efficiency of gasoline engine vehicles. This ethanol boosted engine concept uses a small amount ethanol to increase the efficiency of use of a much larger amount of gasoline by approximately 30%.Cited by: 3. It can be made from natural gas now and from coal later. One major practical problem is that motor vehicle consumption for a fuel has to reach 10 percent of the present market to create an economically viable free market (Society of Automotive Engineers/U.S. Department of Energy ).

Get this from a library. Strategies for reducing gasoline consumption through improved motor vehicle efficiency: a report of an informal Transportation Research Board workshop. [National Research Council (U.S.). Transportation Research Board.

Committee on Energy Conservation and Transportation Demand.;] -- This report contains a summary of a workshop held by the TRB Committee on Energy. The fuel economy of an automobile relates distance traveled by a vehicle and the amount of fuel consumed.

Consumption can be expressed in terms of volume of fuel to travel a distance, or the distance travelled per unit volume of fuel consumed. Since fuel consumption of vehicles is a significant factor in air pollution, and since importation of motor fuel can be a large part of a nation's L/ km → km/20 L:L, /,k, m, =, 1, k, m, /, 20, L, {\displaystyle {\frac {}{\rm {L/\;km}}}={\rm {1\;km/20\;L}}}.

With full emphasis on reducing actual fuel consumption rather than on increasing vehicle performance and size, at a fuel price of $ per gallon and a 7 percent discount rate over 15 years (the average vehicle lifetime) andmiles, improved gasoline engines fully pay back the retail price increase (relative to a current vehicle.

Oct 26,  · The U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Data Center provides information, data, and tools to help vehicle fleets and transportation decision makers find ways to reduce petroleum consumption through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other fuel-saving measures.

Reducing Fuel Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Medium- and Heavyautomatic tire inflation systems, improved transmissions, improved efficiency of accessories, fans, and water pumps, and other approaches.

Evaluate the potential for reducing vehicle mass including technologies such as materials substitution, and the use of new. Reducing Aerodynamic Drag and Fuel Consumption Improved fuel economy from other shape changes The DOE effort to reduce truck aerodynamic drag* The DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Office of FreedomCAR & Vehicle Technologies, supports a collaborative effort of 9 organizations: LLNL, SNL, ANL,NASA Ames, USC, Caltech, UTC, Auburn, GTRI.

Efficient energy use, sometimes simply called energy efficiency, is the goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services.

For example, insulating a home allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable temperature.

Reducing the number of vehicles in any given fleet is the most proven way to reduce overall costs. The average total cost of ownership (TCO) for a light-duty vehicle (under 10,pounds GVWR) ranges from $5, to $8, per vehicle, per year.

Eliminating vehicles offers a potential savings opportunity of more than $, per year. The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy. Sep 03,  · If you’re a for-profit business, reducing operating costs will have a direct impact on your profitability.

Operating cost ratios. Understanding your operating costs is significant because it allows you to derive many other relevant business figures and ratios. Below are the two most important data points that you can obtain through operating 3/5(2).

China has a relatively small but rapidly growing motor vehicle population. In anticipation of potentially serious air pollution problems in the future as a result of these vehicles, a multi year effort was undertaken to develop a national strategy for motor vehicle pollution control.

Sep 07,  · This paper presented an experimental study about the idle performance of a rotary engine fueled with hydrogen and gasoline blends. The idle speed was reduced from original to and rpm, and hydrogen energy percentage (β H2) was varied from 0% to %.Test results showed that cyclic variation was raised with the decrease of idle speed whereas reduced with the increase of Cited by: Electrification is a Key Strategy Electrification stands out as a key pillar of OEM strategies.

And, as costs start to fall, OEMs are expected to employ the full spectrum of electrification options – from micro, to mild hybrids, through full hybrid, plug-in hybrid, range extender and up to full battery electric vehicles.
