TROY, MI – OnStar’s monthly diagnostic e-mail now allows drivers to monitor conditions that can affect fuel efficiency, including tire pressure and vehicle emissions, according to Telematics Update. OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics enhancements, being phased in throughout the remainder of 2006, will include tire pressure monitoring, E-85 ethanol compatibility, enhanced vehicle emissions data, and oil-life monitoring predictions to provide subscribers with real-time information on how they can help reduce fuel consumption. Launched in September last year, OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics has more than 1.6 million subscribers.
