Are there standards for fuel economy like there are for emissions?

0

Yes. Through the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) program, the federal government has established separate fuel economy standards for cars and trucks. The standards are for the average fuel economy of the entire fleet of cars or trucks for a given model year. A penalty is assessed if a manufacturer’s fleet does not meet the average standard. The standards are enforced by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The fuel economy values on which the CAFE standards are based are not comparable to the city and highway estimates given in the Green Vehicle Guide, because they are determined using different calculation methods. For more information on CAFE go to DOT’s CAFE web site.
