NOTES
Heat equivalent factor used for joule conversion is 38,657,950 joules/liter.
In January 2000, the American Public Transit Association changed its name to the American Public
Transportation Association. The Transit Fact Book is now referred to as the Public Transportation Fact
Book.
1.609344 kilometers = 1 mile.
3.785412 liters = 1 gallon.
