WHAT IS FUEL-EFFICIENCY?

Fuel efficiency refers to the distance you can travel in your vehicle on an amount of fuel. The first (and most common) reference is liters per 100km (liters/100km). This is how many liters of fuel your car needs in order to travel 100km. You’ll often see it referred to as “fuel economy”. Rule of thumb on this one: the lower the number of liters stated, the better the fuel economy.

WHAT DO THE EPA FUEL ECONOMY NUMBERS MEAN?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tests all vehicles under controlled lab conditions so consumers can compare the fuel economy between different models. These conditions are designed to account for real-world driving conditions. Conditions, such as faster driving speeds and acceleration, air conditioner use, and colder outside temperatures, are tested. However, on the road, your vehicle’s mileage will vary due to factors, such as individual driving habits, cargo, and maintenance. Vehicles’ mpg is usually shown as rated for city, highway, and combined ratings (city/highway/combined).

OUR ADVICE

Remember, when looking for your next fuel-efficient vehicle, there are a few points to keep in mind. Front-wheel drive and a smaller horsepower engine help save on fuel consumption. Also, consider a CVT vehicle to get the most gear ratios possible.
