    Fuel economy policies have been on the books since , but misconceptions about how the policy works persist. Overall, increasing fuel efficiency is good news for consumers since it reduces how much money is spent on gasoline. But automakers sometimes talk about the standards in a way that implies consumers will lose out. Below, we address three common myths about fuel economy standards. By , new cars and light trucks were expected to achieve an unprecedented average fuel economy of nearly 50 miles per gallon (mpg), reducing fuel consumption by 4 billion barrels of oil and cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 2 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide .

SAFE Part II sets carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions standards and corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards for passenger vehicles and light duty trucks, covering model years (MYs) In the joint rulemaking, the Trump Administration.

The Trump administration has argued that cutting Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards will allow automakers to produce cheaper cars, something they say will save 3, lives as lower.

Get this from a library. Manufacturer's policies concerning average fuel economy standards. [Robert P Whorf; Robert Whorf and Associates.; United States. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.].

Fuel-economy standards are minimum fuel efficiency standards for new vehicles. These standards curb GHG emissions by improving the fuel efficiency of the new vehicle fleet. Fuel-economy standards should be administered upstream to capture percent of the market for new vehicles, requiring each vehicle manufacturer to meet a fleet average fuel-economy standard for all new.

Passenger Car and Light Truck Standards for and beyond. InNHTSA established final passenger car and light truck CAFE standards for model yearswhich the agency projects will require in model yearon average, a combined fleet-wide fuel economy of mpg.

Manufacturer's policies concerning average fuel economy standards. Final report. (), by Robert P. Whorf (page images at HathiTrust) Corporate strategies of automotive manufacturers. Volume I: executive summary of conclusions - strategic issues. Final. Fuel economy standards under the rules will rise by per cent each year through to Manufacturers would have needed to achieve 5 per cent gains annually under the previous standards.

The harmonic average is the reciprocal of the average of the gallons per mile used by each car in the fleet. For example, a company that sells a vehicle with a fuel economy rating of 20 mpg and a vehicle with a fuel economy rating of 40 Manufacturers policies concerning average fuel economy standards book would achieve a CAFE rating of mpg.

The Japanese government has established a set of fuel economy standards for gasoline and diesel powered light-duty passenger and commercial vehicles, with fuel economy targets based on average vehicle fuel economy by weight class. The targets for gasoline vehicles are to be met bywhile was the target year for diesel vehicles.

The fuel consumption standard is inversely equivalent to the fuel economy standard. Instead of increasing fuel economy, light-duty vehicles must decrease the gallons consumed per mile. Combination or option. The United States and Mexico have both fuel economy and GHG standards, and manufacturers must satisfy both.

The standards relate the Corporate Average Fuel Consumption (in liters/ km) to the Corporate Average Curb Weight of all the cars sold by a manufacturer in a fiscal year. According to the first standard, the average weight of all cars is expected to be kg inand the Average Fuel Consumption Standard would have to be less than 5.

Abstract. As the title of this book (Transportation Policy and Economic Regulation: Essays in Honor of Theodore Keeler) suggests, Theodore Keeler has had a tremendous impact on the field of transportation economics, in assessing the impacts and appropriateness of various policies and in helping to shape regulatory policies concerning the transportation industries.

CAFE or Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency/Economy regulations are in force in many advanced as well as developing nations, including India. They aim at lowering fuel consumption (or improving fuel.

Real-world fuel economy is typically 20% smaller than the federal compliance value, so the compliance value corresponds to approximately 43 miles per gallon in typical driving conditions (Bond & Bunkley, ). Regulators in both Europe and the U.S.

are looking into compliance reforms that would emphasize real-world fuel Size: KB. Average Fuel Economy Standards, Passenger Cars and Light Trucks, Model Year NHTSA estimates that the MY standards will raise the industry-wide combined average to mpg, save million gallons of fuel over the lifetime of the MY cars and light trucks, and reduce CO2 emissions by million metric tons during that period.

These new standards will reduce average global warming emissions of new passenger cars and light trucks to grams per mile (g/mi) in model year This is equivalent to miles per gallon (mpg), if the standards were met exclusively with fuel efficiency improvements 1. Auto fuel economy standards are an important part of the fuel economy policy package, particularly in countries that have an auto manufacturing industry.

Standards help to increase regulatory certainty for manufacturers faced with long investment cycles, enabling them to bring new technology to market.

Federal Programs Directory: Automotive Fuel Economy Program. Introduction. Inthe U.S. Congress, responding to dramatic increases in petroleum prices, set minimum average standards for automobile fuel economy (i.e.

the amount of fuel consumed by a vehicle per mile of travel). Inthe Obama administration worked with California to set greenhouse gas and efficiency standards for transportation that aimed to roughly double the average fleetwide fuel economy.

Trump said he was ordering the EPA to reopen a mid-term review of Corporate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE, standards that would require the industry to deliver a fleet average .For the fuel economy calculation for alternative fuel vehicles, a gallon of alternative fuel is deemed to contain 15% fuel (which is approximately the amount of gasoline in a gallon of E85) as an incentive to develop alternative fuel vehicles.

The Trump administration is in the process of rolling back Obama-era fuel economy standards, which were originally set to hit an average of .
