AUGMENTATION OF RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS CAPABILITIES FOR TIMELY SUPPORT OF AUTOMOTIVE FUEL ECONOMY ACTIVITIES. VOLUME III - APPENDIX D

A series of research tasks were undertaken to assess the potential fuel economy improvements for passenger cars and light trucks during the 1980 to 1985 time frame, and later to 1990. Supported by NHTSA's fuel economy activity, this program provided analytical capabilities in the areas of automotive technology, product planning, manufacturing costs and transportation energy economics. Volumes II and III, as appendices, contain detailed assessments of those subject areas not reported previously under NTIS. These subjects are: tire rolling resistance, aerodynamic drag, and improved lubricants; manufacturing and consumer costs; unregulated diesel emission research; and alternate means of petroleum conservation.
