Measured driving pattern data for 4 Australian cities are compared with driving cycles from U.S.A., Europe and Japan, and with cycles developed to represent driving in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. If cycle emissions rates and fuel consumption are intended to typify those of Australian urban driving a new drive cycle is needed since the legislated cycles do not closely replicate observed driving patterns or vehicle emissions and fuel consumption.
