MODEL YEAR 1996 FUEL ECONOMY GUIDE. EPA FUEL ECONOMY ESTIMATES, OCTOBER 1995
This Guide is published as an aid to consumers considering the purchase of a new vehicle. It lists estimates of miles per gallon (mpg) for each vehicle available for the new model year. These estimates are provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in compliance with Federal Law. This Guide is intended to help consumers compare the fuel economy of similarly sized cars, light duty trucks and special purpose vehicles. The vehicles listed in the Guide have been divided into three classes of cars (sedans, two-seaters, and station wagons), three classes of light duty trucks (vans, small pick-ups, and large pick-ups), and three classes of special purpose vehicles (2-wheel drive, 4-wheel drive, and cab chassis). By using this Guide consumers can estimate the average yearly fuel cost for any vehicle. The mileage data are most useful when comparing vehicles. The actual mileage when driving a vehicle may differ considerably from the predicted mileage.
