The purpose of this survey was to establish a data base concerning personal use of the passenger car in Canada, which would contain total distance travelled, total amount of fuel consumed, average distance obtained per unit of fuel, total expenditures on fuel, seasonal fluctuations in fuel consumption and in distance travelled. Among the needs served by this data base are the monitoring of passenger car fuel economy standards and the estimation of passenger car fuel requirements in conditions involving fuel shortages. To meet these objectives, a monthly survey has been developed and the results are tabulated on a quarterly basis. (TRRL)
