PASSENGER CAR FUEL ECONOMY: EPA AND ROAD

In accordance with Section 404 and the Conference Report, this report has two objectives: To determine the degree to which "EPA MPG" figures used in fuel economy labels and gas mileage guides provide realistic estimates of average in-use fuel economy; and to provide a technical basis for revising, as necessary, the label and guide MPG figures to better agree with average in-use fuel economy and, further, to provide information on the degree to which specific in-use fuel economy influences can cause departures from the standardized label and guide fuel economy figures.
