Data from 842 vehicles (model years 1975-1976) in the Fiscal Year 1975 Emission Factor Program are utilized to examine the differences between fuel economies derived from EPA tests on in-use, consumer owned vehicles and the appropriate values for each vehicle which appear in the Gas Mileage Guides. The discrepancies are examined in terms of absolute differences and percentages. Various vehicle classification, maintenance and utilization factors are investigated to determine their relationship to these discrepancies. The agreement in ranking of vehicles on fuel economy between EF and guide determined economies is also investigated.
