Motor Vehicle Fuel Consumption and Travel (Metric)

Dataset Excel: 
Notes: 

Motor vehicles, fuel consumption and travel data include light duty vehicles, buses, trucks and motorcycles.

For 2007-13, the 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 4-11, 4-12, 4-13, 4-14, and 4-15 for individual highway vehicles.

1 gallon = 3.785412 liters and 1 mile = 1.609344 kilometers.
