The EPA Fuel Economy Label Through the Years (Text Only)
Over the years, we’ve updated our vehicle testing process so MPG ratings better reflect real-world driving. Our newest label now includes ratings for greenhouse gas and smog emissions.
- The fuel economy label was launched in 1974.
- The fuel economy label was updated in 1978, 1986, 1995, 2008, and 2013.
