New cars always come with fuel economy numbers stickers on their window. This gives new car buyers instant information about the mpg (miles per gallon) of any car on the lot. The thing is, if you’re looking at a used vehicle, fuel efficiency info isn’t always available to buyers.
FuelEconomy .gov has solved that problem. Now, you can check a used car’s fuel economy numbers and print them as window stickers. Buyers can compare the numbers of the updated fuel economy numbers of each used car dating back to 1984. Updated, meaning that if your original 1995 Honda Civic was once quoted at 40 miles per gallon, the new fuel economy number is 33 mpg. This will give us an idea of how much fuel a particular used car consumes now.
