Abstract
For each model year, the Energy Policy and Conservation Act requires that a compilation of fuel economy values be provided to the public. These data are intended to help the consumer compare the fuel economy of similar size cars, light-duty trucks, and special purpose vehicles. The adjusted and unadjusted fuel economy values are provided for city, highway and a combination of city and highway driving. The unadjusted, or as tested, fuel economy values are as calculated during the testing of a vehicle on a chassis dynamometer. The adjusted fuel economy values have been adjusted to reflect conditions which would normally be encountered during actual driving. These values are always lower than the values calculated during the actual testing in laboratory controlled conditions. In addition, the interior volume and estimated annual fuel costs are provided. All of the above data was submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency's Certification Division, National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory, 2565 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor, MI.
