Proposed New Car Fuel Economy Stickers

The EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are revising the fuel economy label that is required on all new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the U.S., according to this press release. There are two primary label designs under consideration.

There are new stickers for Hybrid/Advanced Technology cars; the new designs are much cleaner than the tired ones we are all so familiar with — a welcome upgrade.

The circa 1970s stickers received a modest upgrade in 2008, but the new ones are far more comprehensive.  I think these are a big improvement over the old ones.  The EPA is taking comments now also: Might not be a bad thing to let them know you like the concept . . .
