The U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency have just released the 2018 Fuel Economy Guide, available online at fueleconomy.gov (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/printGuides.shtml). The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) publish the Guide each year to help new car buyers choose the most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets their needs. The online version of the Guide will be updated regularly on fueleconomy.gov as additional information is submitted by the auto manufacturers. New and used car buyers can also use the Find-a-Car feature on fueleconomy.gov (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/findacar.shtml) to compare the fuel economy of all vehicles sold in the United States since 1984.
Along with the Guide, DOE and EPA have released online versions of the 2018 “Top Ten” (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/topten.jsp) and “Best and Worst in EPA Size Class” (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/best-worst.shtml) fuel economy lists. Like the online Guide, these online lists will be updated throughout 2018 as new data become available.
