The U.S. Department of Energy and the EPA have released a new online tool to print your own window sticker showing off your vehicle’s fuel economy figures.
Obviously a benefit to used car sales, consumers can now quickly glance at a vehicle on the lot to see its fuel economy. The site’s database features vehicles dating back to 1984. Dealerships will not be required by law to post the stickers on used cars.
You can head to FuelEconomy.gov to print one out for your own vehicle, or to just verify the fuel economy you’re supposed to be getting out of your car. The figures shown on the used car labels are EPA ratings and the agency stated that if the vehicle is well maintained, the original fuel economy is still accurate.
