New Fuel Economy Stickers

Interesting article in Automotive News about new fuel economy stickers. From the looks of it, auto dealers aren’t too keen on having fuel economy labeled with a letter grade (an admittedly stupid idea).

There’s also the question of plug-in hybrids: Do you give them an “A” grade even though a good chunk of their electricity comes from burning coal?

  1. Interesting article. Consumers have a conscience when it comes to making "green" choices. The idea of grading a vehicle based on its emissions or possible carbon footprint is a step in the right direction. We all want to make green decisions and we want to be able to make them easily. A grading system offers a consumer an easy solution to choosing a green vehicle. Dealers maybe opposed to this system since it puts them in a situation where they may not have a fleet of "A" vehicles to sell. All I can say is the bar is being raised and manufacturers will be forced to meet the "green" minded consumer especially those who are first time buyers.
