PARATRANSIT VEHICLE TEST AND EVALUATION. VOLUME IV: FUEL ECONOMY TESTS

A series of tests and evaluations of two prototype vehicles for paratransit were conducted. This volume (Volume IV) presents the test procedures and results of the fuel economy tests. The test series determined the fuel economy of the vehicles as they were driven through simulated urban and suburban driving cycles. The relationships between fuel consumption and vehicle speeds were determined and maximum fuel economies were established.
