EVALUATION OF PROGRAMS TO PROMOTE FUEL SAVING PRODUCTS IN CALIFORNIA
This paper evaluates the technical and programmatic issues associated with the design of a California state-sponsored consumer information program on automotive fuel saving products. It identifies relevant products, outlines procedures for testing their technical merits, and discusses testing facilities and available test results. Based on these results, aftermarket devices (hardware), fuel efficient lubricants, and radial tires are evaluated for fuel conservation potential and cost effectiveness. The paper discusses various options for a consumer information program, including information dissemination, advertising disclosure, sales regulation, and liability reform. Programmatic benefits and costs are quantified for most options.
