The work reported in this paper has been undertaken because of a concern for a general tendency in the transport community to make sweeping statements about the desirability of diverting traffic from one mode to another in order to save fuel. Such pronouncements can be misleading when applied to any particular case, so a need exists to establish the proper basis for examining and comparing the energy performance of alternative modes of transport.
