Learn About the New Label

Greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles are an important contributor to climate change.

Visit EPA's climate change page for more details.

Click on a tab to view the new labels for various vehicle/fuel types. Move the cursor over parts of the label to learn more.

Shows the type of fuel or fuels the vehicle can use. You will most commonly see "Gasoline Vehicle," "Flexible Fuel Vehicle: Gasoline-Ethanol," or "Diesel Vehicle." Learn more
Find the MPG fuel economy estimates here. The Combined City/Highway estimate is the most prominent to allow quick and easy comparison to other vehicles. Learn more
Look here to compare the fuel efficiency of this vehicle to other vehicles in the same category and to find out the highest fuel economy among all vehicles. Learn more
This is an estimate of how much more (or less) this vehicle will cost to fuel over five years relative to the average new vehicle, based on the assumptions listed in the print at the bottom of the label. Learn more
The estimated rate of fuel consumption, in gallons per 100 miles, for combined city and highway driving. Unlike MPG, consumption relates directly to the amount of fuel used, and thus to fuel expenditures. Learn more
The estimated annual fuel cost of the vehicle, based on the assumptions listed in the print at the bottom of the label. Learn more
A 1 to 10 rating based on fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions, where a rating of 10 is best. The pointer shows where this vehicle is within the range. Learn more
Shows tailpipe CO2 emissions in grams per mile for combined city and highway driving and the emissions of the vehicle with the lowest CO2 emissions. Explains that consumers can learn more about emissions from the production of fuels at www.fueleconomy.gov. Learn more
A 1 to 10 rating, where a rating of 10 is best, based on exhaust emissions that contribute to air pollution. The pointer shows where this vehicle is within the range. Learn more
Look here for information related to the estimates and ratings, such as the assumptions used to determine the estimated annual fuel cost (15,000 miles per year and $3.70 per gallon for this example). Also contains a reminder that "your mileage will vary." Learn more
Download a free bar code app to your smartphone and scan this QR CodeŽ to get additional and customizable information about the vehicle. Learn more
Consumer information and tools associated with the new labels will be available at:www.fueleconomy.gov. Learn more
Shows the type of fuel or fuels the vehicle can use. You will most commonly see "Gasoline Vehicle," Flexible Fuel Vehicle: Gasoline-Ethanol," or "Diesel Vehicle." Learn more
Fuel efficiency for combined city and highway driving is shown for both modes of operation: on electricity and on gasoline. Electric fuel efficiency is shown in miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). MPGe is a metric based on energy content that can be used to compare across different vehicle technologies and fuels. Learn more
The estimated rate of fuel consumption for combined city and highway driving. Electricity consumption is shown in kilowatt-hours per 100 miles and gasoline consumption is shown in gallons per 100 miles. Unlike MPG, consumption relates directly to the amount of fuel used, and thus to fuel expenditures. Learn more
Look here to compare the fuel efficiency of this vehicle to other vehicles in the same category and to find out the highest fuel economy among all vehicles. Learn more
This indicates how long it takes to charge a fully empty battery using 240 volt electrical service. Learn more
Shows the estimated all-electric range on a fully charged battery and the estimated total range using both gasoline and electricity. Learn more
This is an estimate of how much more (or less) this vehicle will cost to fuel over five years relative to the average new vehicle, based on the assumptions listed in the print at the bottom of the label. Learn more

Beyond Tailpipe Emissions

Driving your vehicle can yield both greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from your vehicle's tailpipe and GHG emissions related to the production of the fuel used to power your vehicle. For example, activities associated with fuel production such as feedstock extraction, feedstock transport to a processing plant, and conversion of feedstock to motor fuel, as well as distribution of the motor fuel, can all produce GHG emissions. continue reading »
