Data from 1099 vehicles (model years 1974-1976) in the Fiscal Year 1975 Emission Factor Program are utilized in examining the differences between owner estimated fuel economies and fuel economies derived from EPA tests on the same in-use, consumer-owned vehicles. 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 owner determined and EPA determined economies is also investigated.
