Gasoline consumption in Iran is three times more than the standard
WANA (Jun 3) – According to the announcement of the deputy of the human environment of Iran Environmental Protection Organization, out of 25 million cars in the country, 6.5 million cars are worn out. In other words, almost every four cars driving on inner-city and suburban roads is a worn-out car that consumes much gasoline and emits more pollution than other cars.
It’s not just used cars that have high gasoline consumption in Iran. Even newly produced vehicles in the country tend to consume more fuel than international standards.
The average gasoline consumption of cars inside Iran is nearly three times more than the world’s formal consumption; While domestically produced cars should consume 4 litres of gasoline per 100 kilometres, currently, Iranian cars consume 10 to 12 litres per 100 KM.
