Abstract

It is quite a well-known fact that there exists a gap between fuel consumption of vehicles measured by driving schedule test cycle and fuel consumption in actual use (actual fuel consumption). In order to investigate the actual fuel consumption statistically, we put focus upon the voluntary reported fuel consumption log data collected through an internet-connected mobile phone system from all over Japan and have been establishing an actual fuel consumption database. In this paper, actual fuel consumption of hybrid electric vehicles, together with those of internal combustion engine vehicles, in Japanese condition has been estimated.
