Fact sheet

Fuel economy of Australian passenger vehicles: a regional perspective

14 Aug 2017
Description

This information sheet presents Australian data on how realised rates of fuel consumption vary over time, and how the rates depend on key vehicle characteristics such as number of cylinders, fuel type and vehicle age. It also investigates state/territory differences in fuel economy and presents new small area estimates of the average rate of fuel consumption for Australia’s regions.

These small area estimates are based on the composition of the passenger vehicle and motorcycle fleet in the region, and are derived at both the Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) and Statistical Area Level 4 (SA4) scale. The key data sources are the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Survey of Motor Vehicle Use(SMVU) 2016 and the ABS Census of Motor Vehicles2016.
