It is known that driving patterns have a significant impact on fuel economy. Much fuel is wasted due to unnecessary driving activity, even in the case of highly qualified drivers. This paper examines the driver’s behaviour across two sections of the selected routes and quantifies the possible benefits of fuel savings from improvements in driving patterns during transport. Drivers’ behaviour on the roadways differs depending on the road condition, and it directly affects fuel consumption. The fuel consumption rate of the vehicle increases with speed but is also dominated by acceleration. During acceleration, fuel consumption rates are excessive even under low-speed conditions, especially in the range of 31-60km/h with 11.57 Liter/100km.
