This report indicates that vehicle weight is the single most important vehicle design parameter affecting fuel economy. Other aspects of vehicle design (size, tires, axle ratio, engine compression ratio, air conditioning, transmission type, emission controls, and engine size and type) and operation (speed, trip length, acceleration, maintenance, road surface and grade, and elevation) were also examined.
