According to the EPA’s website, says MMNA, the Fuel Economy Guide is “an annual publication containing the fuel economy estimates for all cars and light trucks. The guide includes much more information that appears on the window sticker alone. It includes information about alternative fueled vehicles, the range of fuel economy for different classes of vehicles, a list of fuel economy leaders, and tips for improving fuel economy.”[ Also Read: Nissan Electric Vehicles to Use Solar Power ]
