CAR or TRUCK as GREEN as can be...FUEL ECONOMY LABELS - what they look like and do.




In May 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) unveiled the most dramatic overhaul to fuel economy labels since they were introduced 35 years ago. When the new labels start to appear in showrooms and online, shoppers will have more information at their fingertips than ever before. The redesigned label's provide the public with new information on vehicles’ fuel economy, energy use, fuel costs, and environmental impacts.
For the first time comparable fuel economy and environmental ratings will be available for all new vehicles, including advanced technology vehicles like electric cars. Consumers will be able to make comparisons – car by car – to ensure they have the best information to help save on fuel costs and reduce emissions.
