This leads to systematically different technology needs. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently announced it will examine a current rule that adjusts civil penalties related to the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for inflation.© Shutterstock Two notices were published in the Federal Register.

The first notice responds to a December rule called Civil. Receipts into the federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) comes from a variety of taxes on highway fuel, tires, heavy vehicle use tax, truck/trailer sales taxes. The motor fuel excise tax, currently cents per gallon for gasoline/gasohol, and cents for special fuel (primarily diesel) raises the majority of the revenue.

Extrapolating this trend out to suggests an average on-road fuel economy of 36 mpg that year, or about kg CO2 per vehicle mile for a gasoline vehicle.

A fuel economy at this level results in a 58% reduction in emissions per vehicle mile against today’s rate of kg CO2 per vehicle mile for gasoline cars and light trucks. Table 1. U.S. Department of Transportation.

Fuel economy values determined during the preconditioning cycle of the Highway Fuel Economy Test will be lower than those determined during the measuring cycle.

There is a direct, but not very strong relation between the percent difference of the fuel economy values from both cycles and the soak time between the FTP (or LA-4) and the highway.

A new report concludes that most fleets should look at adopting lower-viscosity engine oils for fuel savings. The latest Confidence Report from Trucking Efficiency, a collaborative effort of the North American Council for Freight Efficiency and Carbon War Room, finds that Class 8 over-the-road fleets can realistically expect fuel savings in the range of % to % by switching from 15W to.
