AFLEET Tool

    The Alternative Fuel Life-Cycle Environmental and Economic Transportation (AFLEET) Tool, was developed to help Clean Cities stakeholders estimate petroleum use, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, air pollutant emissions, and cost of ownership of light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles using simple spreadsheet inputs.

    The AFLEET Tool provides three calculation methods depending on the user’s goals:

    • Simple Payback Calculator – estimates a simple payback of purchase of a new AFV compared to a conventional counterpart using acquisition and annual operating costs, as well as average annual petroleum use, GHGs, and air pollutant emissions.
    • Total Cost of Ownership Calculator – estimates the net present value of operating and fixed costs over the years of planned ownership of a new vehicle, as well as lifetime petroleum use, GHGs and air pollutant emissions
    • Fleet Energy and Emissions Footprint Calculator – estimates the annual petroleum use, GHGs and air pollutant emissions of existing and new vehicles, taking into consideration that older vehicles typically have higher air pollutant emission rates than newer ones.

    You can find both the AFLEET Tool spreadsheet and user manual here:
