Fuel Economy Website

Q: I am looking into purchasing a new car and want to know the fuel economy (MPG) that each vehicle achieves. Do you know of a website where I can compare several vehicles side-by-side?

A: An excellent website to compare vehicles is FuelEconomy.gov. This website uses information from car manufacturers, U.S. Department of Energy, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. At this website you can select and compare new or used cars’ MPG, safety ratings, and the amount of greenhouse gases that they emit.
