Abstract
The aim of this paper is to investigate in detail, how traffic congestion affects fuel consumption and to evaluate the importance of including traffic congestion in modeling and driver information systems. This analysis is based on empirical data collected from some itineraries of a metropolitan motorway and streets of the metropolitan area of Madrid, Spain. Specifically, a total of 3,800 trips were recorded with three vehicles under different traffic conditions and driving styles. The results show considerable increase in fuel consumption under congested traffic conditions compared with free flow conditions, but also points to the differences depending on the type of itinerary.
