PRELIMINARY CALCULATION OF FUEL ECONOMY ADJUSTMENT FACTORS

This report is a dual purpose report: (1) it is a cover report for EPA Final report 460/3-81-003, "Development of Adjustment Factors for On-Road Fuel Economy" and (2) it is a preliminary determination of fuel economy adjustment factors in support of on-going fuel economy rulemaking activity. In its role as a cover for the EPA report, it extracts key findings, critiques the findings and offers modifications to the findings where there is reason to adopt alternate assumptions. In its rulemaking support role as an initial estimate of MPG adjustment factors, it compares the EEA (Energy And Environmental Analysis) results with those of other recent, significant publications in this area. The resulting preliminary adjustment factors herein are thus an amalgam of the factors derived by these four data sources.
