J1082_200802 - Fuel Economy Measurement Road Test Procedure

Document Number: J1082_200802
Revision Number:
Fuel Economy Measurement Road Test Procedure
This SAE Standard incorporates driving cycles that produce fuel consumption data relating to Urban, Suburban, and Interstate driving patterns and is intended to be used to determine the relative fuel economy among vehicles and driving patterns under warmed-up conditions on test tracks, suitable roads, or chassis dynamometers. The urban driving cycle forms the basis of a Cold-Start Test Procedure described in SAE J1256. Purpose This document provides uniform testing procedures for measuring the fuel economy of light-duty vehicles (motor vehicles designed primarily for transportation of persons or property and rated at 4500 kg (10 000 lb) or less) on suitable roads.
