FUEL CONSUMPTION TRENDS IN TODAY'S VEHICLES

THIS PAPER DISCUSSES FUEL ECONOMY IN PRESENT AUTOMOBILES AND SHOWS THAT AS VEHICLE WEIGHT HAS INCREASED AND EMISSION CONTROLS HAVE BECOME MORE STRINGENT, FUEL ECONOMY HAS DETERIORATED AND WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO DO SO. WEIGHT IS SEEN AS THE SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN REDUCTION OF FUEL ECONOMY AND PERFORMANCE, AND SMALLER CARS ARE SEEN AS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. /AUTHOR/
