2008 Ratings Changes

EPA changed the way it estimates fuel economy starting with the 2008 model year. This "new" way of estimating fuel economy supplements the previous method by incorporating the effects of

  • Faster speeds and acceleration
  • Air conditioner use
  • Colder outside temperatures

What else do I need to know about the "new" ratings?
