ABSTRACT
This paper presents the chosen significant parameters affecting vehicle fuel consumption during the vehicle operation. The conducted measurement results define important practical operational functions in the actual operation of the vehicle, which allows for further processing of the input data in order to measure fuel consumption in laboratory tests. The proposal of the methodology for measuring the fuel consumption based on actual operation conditions in the city of Žilina and its surroundings was shown.
