A highway fuel consumption computer model is given. The model allows the computation of fuel consumption of a highway vehicle class as a function of time. The model is of the initial value (in this case initial inventory) and lumped parameter type. Parameters included in the analysis are (a) vehicle population in the initial year by fuel economy category and age, (b) the miles driven as a function of age, (c) vehicle survival as a function of age, (d) projections of vehicle populations as a function of time, and (e) the projected fractional mix, by fuel categories, of new vehicles introduced in the vehicle population.
