Feds Change Fuel Economy Rules

September 26, 2002

Federal lawmakers agreed on Sept. 19 to make minor changes to U.S. fuel economy rules intended to decrease the amount of gasoline consumed by light trucks, according to a recent Detroit News report. Legislators agreed on a savings goal of 5 billion gallons of gas used by SUVs and other light trucks over seven years, starting with the 2006-model year. Some lawmakers wanted a larger reduction in consumption and said the change will improve the fuel economy of light truck fleets by less than one mile per gallon, according to the report.
