Vehicle fuel economy labels

Cars vary a lot in how much fuel they use, even between similar models. The difference can be hundreds of dollars in fuel a year, adding up to thousands of dollars over a car's lifetime. That's why selecting which car to purchase is the most important fuel efficiency decision you'll make.

Vehicle fuel economy labels give you the power to factor efficiency and running costs into the equation when you choose a car. You'll see the label on cars for sale from registered motor dealers, and online you may see the information displayed as text.
