The accuracy of results obtained from vehicle fuel consumption measurements performed on a dynamometer in predicting fuel consumption on the road depends upon the ability of the dynamometer to simulate the road experience of the vehicle. A series of steady-state tests were run on a 1976 Mercury Montego on a twin-roll dynamometer at the EPA and on the Transportation Research Center test track in Ohio. Under the conditions of this experiment, significantly different fuel consumption was measured on the track versus the consumption measured on the dynamometer.
