Fuel Consumption Ratings

Datasets provide model-specific fuel consumption ratings and estimated carbon dioxide emissions for new light-duty vehicles for retail sale in Canada. NOTE: Vehicle manufacturers are using an improved testing procedure, introduced for model year 2015, to determine the fuel consumption ratings of new light-duty vehicles. The Government of Canada-approved 5-cycle testing supplements the standard (2-cycle) city and highway tests by integrating three additional test cycles that account for air conditioner use, cold temperature operation and driving at higher speeds with more rapid acceleration and braking. In most cases, for the same make and model, 5-cycle testing produces fuel consumption ratings that are 10 to 20 percent higher than the old ratings because they account for additional factors that better approximate everyday driving. To help you compare vehicles from different model years, the fuel consumption ratings for 1995-2014 model year vehicles have been adjusted to reflect the improved testing. Note that these are approximate values that were generated from the original 2-cycle ratings, not from vehicle testing. (Modified: October 21, 2016)

    As of February 25th, 2014 the year 2014 in datasets MY2014 Fuel Consumption Ratings.csv and AM2014 Cotes de consommation de carburant.csv is incorrectly spelled as 2104. Data organizers should fix this issue ASAP!

    Thank you for your comment. The following response has been posted on behalf of Natural Resources Canada : "The information is collected from manufactures who use a specific government approved two-cycle test methodology. The ratings reflect those test result and are intended to provide an objective means of comparing vehicles. While the numbers are achievable, factors such as weather, road conditions, and driving habits can dramatically vary real world driving results. Starting in 2015, the new vehicle test methodology will be switched to five-cycles with the addition of aggressive driving, cold weather, and air conditioner use cycles. This will raise the fuel consumption ratings values by an average of 10-20 percent. For more information on the test please go to http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/efficiency/transportation/cars-light-trucks/buying/7491"

    Typos found in the data: - Toyoya (in 1997; should be Toyota) - Infinity (in 1998; should be Infiniti) - Dodge RAM has make = RAM, model = 1500 (etc.); no mention of Dodge (in 2012+)

    Thank you for your comment. The following response has been posted on behalf of Natural Resources Canada : "Thank you for the feedback. With more than 20,000 vehicles spread over 18 years there have been a few errors that we have not caught. We will update the one Toyota entry and the one Infiniti entry shortly. As for Ram question, Chrysler switched to calling their truck solely by the name Ram brand name in 2012 – hence we followed suit".

    I was just wondering what the timing is expected to be for the 2016 data? Thank you.

    Hi Eli, We're reviewing and validating the latest dataset, and hoping to have it posted by Christmas. Kent on behalf of the open-ouvert team

    I do a lot of fuel economy comparisons between cars and the CSV file format is incredibly helpful for me. Thank you!!

    Does the gCO2/km in these files reflect CO2-equivalents and include CH4/N2O? Or, is it simply CO2 emissions alone? If CH4 and N2O are included, what are the global warming potentials used for CH4 and N2O? Thank you,

    Pierre: Merci de votre commentaire concernant le format des cotes de consommation de carburant spécifiquement celle des voitures électriques. Je vous conseille de consulter le site suivant pour plus de renseignement sur les côtes de véhicule à technologie de pointe. Pour faciliter la comparaison des véhicules qui emploient de l’électricité, on convertit en litres équivalents d’essence par 100 kilomètres (Le/100 km), au moyen d’un facteur de conversion, les valeurs de la consommation d’énergie électrique exprimée en kilowattheures par 100 kilomètres (kWh/100 km). Un litre d’essence contient l’énergie équivalant à 8,9 kWh d’électricité.
