Embedded Dataset Excel:
Motor vehicles, fuel consumption and travel data include light duty vehicles, buses, trucks and motorcycles.
Data from 2007 was calculated using a new methodology and data categories of the Highway Statistics series were updated, so the data from 1960-2006 are not comparable. In addition, this edition of table 4-9M is not comparable to editions from 2009 or earlier.
See tables 4-11M, 4-12M, 4-13M, 4-14M, and 4-15M for individual highway vehicles.
1 gallon = 3.785412 liters and 1 mile = 1.609344 kilometers.
