model distributional implications across both producers and consumers. A number of prior studies have considered fuel economy standards in the context of comparing alternative policy instruments: Parry . Here we propose a generalized quarter-car modelling approach, incorporating both the frame as well as other-wheel ground contacts. Our approach is linear, uses Laplace transforms, involves vertical . In its Fuel Economy Guide for model vehicles, the Environmental Protection Agency gives data on vehicles. There are a number of outliers, mainly vehicles with very poor gas mileage. If we . the fuel economy and emissions value proposition of your components to OEMs, based on their own vehicles?
