Estimating Fuel Consumption of Angkot in the Local Medium-sized City in Indonesia

This study investigated fuel consumption of Angkot in Malang city, one of the local medium-sized cities in Indonesia. Angkot is a kind of ‘paratransit’ which is road-based public transport based on gasoline fuel. Because the cost of fuel is significant, it is important to shed light on the mechanism of fuel consumption of Angkot because some people in the mediumsized city in South East Asian countries are dependent on paratransit as a major form of urban public transport. From the field fuel consumption survey of Angkot, the authors estimated a fuel consumption model by conducting multiple regression analysis with reference to heat engine model. The estimated model suggested that while the amount of acceleration did not contribute to fuel consumption much, the amount of idling and moving distance contributed to fuel consumption considerably.
