Feds May Grade Cars' Fuel Economy
September 06, 2010

Imagine if you had to give your car a letter grade in fuel economy.

What would it be be? An A-plus or a C-minus or a D?

The government's grade could soon be staring you in the face the next time you shop for a new car.

The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation are jointly considering giving vehicles letter grades (but no F's) based on their fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions. The grade would be on the window label displayed on every new vehicle in dealers' lots.

No doubt there are strong feelings on whether this is a fair or good idea.

Consumers can view the new labels at epa.gov and e-mail comments to Email: newlabels@epa.gov.
