Government releases 2011 fuel economy guide

November 8th, 2010

From Green Right Now Reports

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have released the 2011 Fuel Economy Guide, providing consumers with information about estimated mileage and fuel costs for model year 2011 vehicles. Overall, the best fuel economy performers are hybrids, but the 2011 fuel economy leader list also includes fuel efficient clean diesels as well as gasoline models.

“Increasing fuel efficiency is important for our environment, our economy and our health – and it helps families save money at the pump,” EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson said in a statement. “This guide will help consumers make the right choice for the environment and for their wallets when buying a car.”

Each vehicle listing in the guide provides an estimated annual fuel cost. The estimate is calculated based on the vehicle’s miles per gallon (mpg) rating and national estimates for annual mileage and fuel prices. The online version of the guide allows consumers to input their local gasoline prices and typical driving habits to receive a personalized fuel cost estimate.

For the first time, the guide includes medium-duty passenger vehicles, which are generally large sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and passenger vans. These vehicles were not previously subject to fuel economy measurement and labeling requirements.
