Measure the distance traveled with an accurate odometer.
The odometer accuracy can be checked by using mea-
sured kilometers [miles].
After traveling the route, remove the tanks, and weigh the
remaining fuel. Compute the fuel used in liters [gallons] as
Compute the kilometers per liter or miles per gallon.
In addition to the measurement of the fuel used, the fol-
lowing factors provide points for running a test similar to the
recognized Type II Society of Automotive Engineers Fuel
These procedures are helpful to determine differences in
fuel consumption between two vehicles under the same
environmental, road, and test conditions.
