Seven passenger cars and one light truck were operated over the EPA urban and highway driving cycles to compare fuel economy measurements obtained on a test track with the fuel economy results obtained on a chassis dynamometer. The test program was designed to duplicate, as closely as possible, the track force loading (as determined by standard EPA road coastdown procedures) on the dynamometer. Experimental parameters which were investigated included loading differences between front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles, volumetric versus carbon balance fuel measurement techniques, coupled versus uncoupled roll dynamometer tests, and curved track versus straight track coastdowns.
