Refueling and the Vehicle Purchase Decision: The Diesel Car Case 870644
A survey of diesel car and light truck owners was conducted in California to determine the importance of limited fuel availability in a household's vehicle purchase decision. Behavioral, attitudinal, and perceptual differences toward limited fuel availability are reported. In particular, the importance of fuel availability is examined as a function of the number of diesel fuel stations. Results are generalized to other non-gasoline vehicles.
