ROAD VEHICLE FUEL ECONOMY. STATE-OF-THE-ART REVIEW 3

This state of the art review from the Transport and Road Research Laboratory is largely based on Transport and Road Research Laboratory work over the past fifteen years. It examines the size and locations of oil reserves, and the demands likely to be made on them in the future by road transport. Principles for improving fuel economy by engine and vehicle design, and by the way motorists drive in real traffic are discussed. The potential of alternative fuels is covered, and the possible role of electric road vehicles assessed. The effects of particular tax regimes are briefly touched on.
