I have a page with URL and title : "/car-supplies.php" and title "Car Supplies". 
 
I want to also attract visitors searching for "vehicle supplies". I am thinking to create a second page with URL "/vehicle-supplies.php" and  title "Vehicle Supplies".
 
The content of the two pages is the same with the exception of the URL, page title, and H1 text.
 
1) Will this raise a duplicate content issue? 
2) If I use the <link rel="canonical" href="mysite/car-supplies.php" /> on the "Vehicle Supplies" page, it will solve the duplicate content, but will it benefit my efforts in ranking for the keyword "Vehicle Supplies"?
3) Should I create a dedicated page for the keywird "Vehicle Supplies" in the first place?
4) Any suggestions on how to optimize for the keyword "Vehicle Supplies" with or without creating a dedicated page?
 
Thanks

Most definitely.
 
2) If I use the <link rel="canonical" href="mysite/car-supplies.php" /> on the "Vehicle Supplies" page, it will solve the duplicate content, but will it benefit my efforts in ranking for the keyword "Vehicle Supplies"?

 

 

No it won't.

 

3) Should I create a dedicated page for the keywird "Vehicle Supplies" in the first place?

 

 

 

Absolutely not. Why would you need or want a completely separate page about something for which you already have a page?

 

4) Any suggestions on how to optimize for the keyword "Vehicle Supplies" with or without creating a dedicated page?

 

 

Yes. Just work the word "vehicle" into the existing content of your "car" page. 

 

And also realize that your whole notion of SEO is based on many year old information which barely applies anymore.
