The eminent journalist Stephen Dubner recently suggested that because many buses are under-utilized, the average bus is actually less fuel-efficient than the average car.   His argument seems to be as follows: the typical bus burns more energy than the typical car- so much so that a bus with only ten passengers actually uses more energy per passenger than the average car.  Thus, an underutilized bus is less fuel-efficient than a car.
