Fuel economy labels now available for used cars

A new label featuring EPA fuel economy estimates and CO2 estimates for used vehicles sold in the United States since 1984 was released last week by the EPA and Energy Department.

Dealers and consumers can create the new label electronically through FuelEconomy.gov, download it and include it in online ads. The paper label can be printed and attached to the vehicle window. The original EPA fuel economy estimate remains the best indicator of a used vehicles gas mileage, the agencies say, because the fuel economy changes very little over a 15-year life with proper maintenance.
