Fuel Economy

Fuel economy has long been a key decision factor when buying a new vehicle. While the EPA estimates may not accurately predict your mileage with a given vehicle, they are useful for broad comparisons of vehicles. Note that many trucks and large SUVS are too heavy to be required to specify their fuel economy.
