Fuel economy and performance vary significantly with the vehicle design and configuration, road profile, and payload. The variation is more pronounced for heavy-duty trucks and understanding its origin is critical to maximizing fleet profitability. We have demonstrated a method to continuously estimate fuel consumption breakdown over resistive forces during a trip. The method is fast, cost-effective, and capable of analyzing trip segments as short as one second.
