a) Data for company car use includes an element of private miles for Germany.
b) Conversion factors used: Medium petrol car (1.4 - 2.1 litres) 1 km = 0.19kg CO2; average diesel car 1km = 01.7kg CO2 (Defra 2005). Dual fuel/LPG vechicles have been assumed to produce approximately 20% less CO2 than diesel vehicles (UK Dept for Transport). Diesel heavy goods vehicle 1km = 1.18kg CO2 (Defra 2005).
