The graphs show the typical season variation of fuel consumption throughout a year. An interesting feature of consumption at the continental stations is the twin peaks- one occurring in April and the other in July.
The charts show that consumption has decreased at Mawson as a result of the decommissioning of the old station buildings and improvements in building heating and ventilation initiated by the Building Monitoring and
Fuel consumption has been stable at Davis, while Casey consumption has increased following a year when extreme measures had to be taken to reduce consumption when a resupply of fuel failed to take place.
