  • The theoretical mileage on a shipment base has shown significant improvement from around 1997 as a result of efforts by manufacturers to improve mileage levels. Driven by this improvement, mileage on an stock base is also showing an improvement trend.

Measures for Reducing the Volume of Fuel Consumption of Automobile

Promotion of Cars with the “Idling-Stop” System

- Idle-free driving can improve fuel economy by approx.10%.
Even greater energy conservation effect is expected in city areas, where idling frequency is high.
- Partial subsidy for the purchase of cars equipped with the "idling-stop" system was introduced in FY2003.
- Promotion campaigns for the "idling-stop" systems are held in the forms of PR events, etc.

Results of "The Idling-Stop 2002 Caravan throughout Japan" In October 2003, an event for "idling-stop" experiments took place at Tokyo's Ginza and Osaka's Shinsaibashi traffic lights.
Nationwide (3719km)..... 5.8% on average
Or 13.4% in city areas

The Effectiveness of Idling Stop 1

Stopped Time and Status of Implementation of Idling Stop
  • In total travel, the ratio of stopped time is 24% and idling stop is implemented in 52% of the stopped time.
  • In urban centers, the ratio of stopped time increases to 48% and between such urban centers, the ratio of stopped time decreases to 14%.
  • Idling stop is implemented in about half of the stopped time.
