October 20, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have unveiled the 2009 Fuel Economy Guide, which can be downloaded at

"With the new Fuel Economy Guide in hand, Americans now have the information they need to buy greener and cleaner cars and trucks," said EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson. "This valuable guide can help jump start any search for a better, more efficient automobile."

Included in the 2009 fuel economy leaders are diesel vehicles. Each vehicle listing in the Fuel Economy Guide provides an estimated annual fuel cost. The online guide includes an interactive feature that allows consumers to insert their local gasoline prices and typical driving habits to receive a personalized fuel cost estimate.

Fuel economy estimates now include the revised test methods implemented in model year 2008. These revised tests better reflect real-world driving conditions and habits, including higher highway speed limits and use of accessories such as air conditioning.

For the first time, the Fuel Economy Guide is available to mobile users (, and is readily accessible from a mobile device, smart phone, or personal digital assistant (PDA).
