EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have released the Fuel Economy Guide for model year 2011 cars and trucks. The guide provides consumers with the vehicles’ estimated mileage and annual fuel costs, and for the first time includes data on sport utility vehicles and passenger vans. Cost estimates are based on the assumption that the vehicles will travel 15,000 miles per year (55 percent under city driving conditions and 45 percent under highway conditions) and that fuel costs $3 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline and $3.20 per gallon for premium. The guide also discusses tax incentives for hybrid, alternative fuel and electric-drive vehicles, and methods for achieving maximum fuel economy.
