The Auto MPG data concerns city-cycle fuel consumption in miles per gallon. It has 398 instances and 9 attributes. 8 attributes are quantitative amongst which 3 are multi-valued

discrete while 5 are continuous. All these attributes refer to specifications of a particular car.

This data set can be analyzed to predict relationship of attributes with each other. Particularly, regression models can be used to predict value of Miles Per Gallon given other attributes.
