MAETNING AV BRAENSLEFOERBRUKNING PA LANDSVAEG: EFFEKTSTUDIER VID OLIKA VAEG- OCH TRAFIKMILJOEER (MEASUREMENT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION ON COUNTRY ROADS: STUDY OF EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT ROAD AND TRAFFIC SITUATIONS)

Fuel-consumption in motor-vehicles has been examined in different road and traffic conditions. Field-measurements with a car on rural roads has resulted in connections between fuel-consumption and the following variables: speed, gradient, horizontal curvature, pavement and queue position. For lorries the effect of gradient on fuel consumption was examined by means of a calculation-model. The model was used for calculating fuel consumption for various weight, speed and gradient.
