      Fuel economy regulations have helped to ensure that the United States remains a technology leader and can effectively compete with automakers in Europe and Asia. In NHTSA, the EPA and the California Air Resources Board performed a midterm evaluation of these regulations to assess their effectiveness and determine the incremental cost of. The average fuel economy for a light-duty model year vehicle was mpg: mpg average for a new passenger car and mpg average for a new light truck. 7; Even when accounting for recent legislation, the U.S. has some of the lowest required fuel economy standards of any industrialized nation, well below the European Union, China.

    Average Fuel Economy Standards, Passenger Cars and Light Trucks, Model Year NHTSA estimates that the MY standards will raise the industry-wide combined average to mpg, save million gallons of fuel over the lifetime of the MY cars and light trucks, and reduce CO2 emissions by million metric tons during that period. "Modern Automotive Technology" is a standard work covering the subject of automotive technology. This second English edition is based on the 30th German edition titled "Fachkunde Kraftfahrzeugtechnik". It has for many years proven to be a highly popular textbook used .
