KEY:  N = data do not exist.

a EIA's data collection does not produce enough survey coverage for local and municipal governments, private fleets, and household vehicles, EIA only publishes the fuel use and the number of vehicles for four fleets; federal government, state governments, transit agencies, and fuel providers. The total fuel used by these four types of fleets do not represent the U.S. total for AFV inventory and fuel use. These values should not be aggregated.

b A high-level ethanol blend containing 51%-83% ethanol depending on season and geography for use in flexible fuel vehicles.

c Includes gasoline-electric hybrids.
