qThe European Conference of Ministers of Transport has released a report that analyzes the gap between fuel efficiency certification test ratings and the actual on-road fuel efficiency of automobiles. The report also examines technologies available that could reduce that gap and improve fuel economy. In addition, the report identifies a number of low-cost technologies that could improve average on-road fuel economy by 10% or more and explores policies that could be used to encourage uptake of these technologies by vehicle manufacturers and consumers.q--publisher summaryIn these vehicles, the computer provides lifetime fuel economy on a display, so that the issue of erroneous owner computation of fuel economy is not relevant. The Honda Insight has an EPA test rating of 75.2 MPG for the five-speed manual transmission model, and the aquot;real-worldaquot; ...
