Title: Energy conservation and cost saving related to highway routine maintenance: data collection and analysis of fuel consumption. Report for Jan-Dec 82

Abstract

This report presents the results of a study aimed at the identification of fuel consumption by various types of equipment used in highway routine maintenance activities in the State of Indiana. Two basic groups of results are discussed: (1) fuel consumption rates for all possible activity-equipment combinations as well as total fuel consumed per production unit of each activity; and (2) the effect of factors such as location (subdistrict), highway type, and season on fuel consumption. The first group of results will be of direct use to the Indiana Department of Highways (IDOH) in the planning of the annual maintenance program, while the second group will be useful in evaluating the actual fuel use (in the field) by different management units (subdistricts).
