This report is an analysis of data obtained under a testing program conducted by the EPA. The analysis deals with a subject of the wide range of factors that contribute to fuel economy differences measured on a road in consumer service as compared to EPA estimates using a dynamometer. Specifically, this report analyzes the relationship between the fuel economy of production cars tested on dynamometer equipment and the fuel economy they achieve when operated over the same driving sequence on a test track. The test track simulates a subset of driving conditions that might be encountered in actual driving.
