Who knew? Forget Consumer Reports… we’ve got our own government to tell us how fuel-efficient our cars, trucks, vans, etc. are.
There’s even a handy Fuel Consumption Guide PDF that summarizes ownership costs, discusses ethanol fuel, and contains a giant table on the fuel consumption data of all automobiles.
Now, the best thing to do would be to decrease our dependency on cars… but if you must purchase a new vehicle, check out that link to find out what’s the most fuel-efficient vehicle you can get. You can get data in litres per kilometre or in miles per gallon.
Forget that Hummer — buy a Honda Insight!
