book the gallons of fuel that could be potentially saved. Based on data provided. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) propose to amend certain existing Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) and greenhouse gas emissions standards for passenger cars and light trucks and establish new standards, covering model years through   This final rule establishes corporate average fuel economy standards for light trucks.

NHTSA is setting a standard of miles per gallon (mpg) for model year (MY)mpg for MYand mpg for MY Pursuant to section (a)(2)(A) of title 5, United States Code, this is our report on a major rule promulgated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Department of Transportation, entitled "Light Truck Average Fuel Economy Standard, Model Year " (RIN AF16).

We received the rule on Ap   In the US, the tradeoff between fuel economy and other vehicle attributes has delivered a model year fleet of cars and light trucks that, over the past 20 years, has added a staggering array of fuel efficiency technologies including supercomputer design of vehicle body structures coupled with new lightweight materials and higher strength steels; significant improvement in aerodynamics.

proposes to establish corporate average fuel economy standards for light trucks at a level of MPG in model year (MY)mpg in MY and mpg in MY The standard for MY is mpg. These proposed standards exceed the fuel economy that would likely be achieved by light trucks in the absence of the standards.

This paper empirically examines the effect of the U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards on the technological progress in automobile fue. Final Regulatory Impact Analysis: Corporate Average Fuel Economy for MY Passenger Cars and Light Trucks MB Final Rule, Record of Decision: Average Fuel Economy Standards Passenger Cars and Light Trucks Model Year MB: 49 CFR Parts, During this time, however, a 21% improvement in fuel economy was delivered for new Class 8 trucks with high-roof sleeper cabs.

In the final three year period studied, andaverage prices went from $, to $, (MY), an increase of $10, Again, a fuel economy saving was delivered over this period (approx. 3%). Phase 1 regulation—adopted on August 9, []—covers model years (MY)with NHTSA fuel economy standards being voluntary in MY to satisfy EISA lead time requirements.

Phase 2 regulation—published on Aug []—applies to MY vehicles. The Phase 2 rule also introduces new standards for. Automobile and Light Truck Fuel Economy: The CAFE Standards Summary On Apthe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) that would establish fuel economy standards for model year (MY) MY passenger cars and light trucks.

The rulemaking is in followup to the Energy Independence and Security Act of. The Regulation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to establish higher corporate average fuel economy standards for light trucks for model year Our Findings.

Corporate average fuel economy CAFE standards supplant consumer preferences regarding vehicle attributes with NHTSA-defined criteria.

InEPA and NHTSA established the heavy-duty national program (known as the Phase 1 standards), the world’s first harmonized greenhouse gas emissions standards and fuel economy standards for on-road heavy-duty vehicles of model years The Phase 1 standards applied to combination tractors, heavy-duty pickup trucks and vans, and.

Today, DOT and the Environmental Protection Agency are finalizing national standards for fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions for passenger cars and light trucks built in the years through Thanks to their work, the car or light truck you'll be driving in will not be your grandfather's Oldsmobile.

NHTSA has regulated since the fuel economy of light-duty vehicles (LDVs)—cars and pickup trucks up to 8, lbs in gross vehicle weight (GVW). More recently, the agency was directed to produce fuel consumption regulations for HDVs by the Energy Security and Information Act (EISA) of (NHTSA), Department of Transportation, entitled "Light Truck Average Fuel Economy Standard, Model Year " (RIN AF16).

We received the rule on Ap It was published in the Federal Register as a final rule on April 3, 61 Fed.

EPA and NHTSA Set Standards to Reduce Greenhouse Gases and Improve Fuel Economy for Model Years Cars and Light Trucks (PDF) (10 pp, K, EPAF, August. U.S. Fuel Economy and CO2 Regulation Historically, light duty vehicles in the United States were held to a fuel economy standard.

Fuel economy regulations in the United States are regulated by the National Highway Transportation Safety Agency (NHTSA). In response to the oil crisis, the U.S.

Congress passed the Energy Policy and. This study conducted an analysis of regulatory documents on current energy- and greenhouse gas–relevant conventional vehicle efficiency technologies in the corporate average fuel economy standards.

The new category Light duty vehicle, long wheel base includes large passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks, and sport/utility vehicles with wheelbases (WB) larger than inches.

The fuel efficiency figures for Light duty vehicles represent the sales-weighted harmonic average of the combined Passenger car and Light truck fuel economies.

This final rule establishes the average fuel economy standard for light trucks manufactured in model year (MY) The issuance of the standard is required by statute. As required by section of the fiscal year (FY) DOT Appropriations Act, the light truck standard for MY is identical to the standard for MYmpg.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) jointly finalized a new rule that requires medium and heavy-duty trucks to improve fuel efficiency up to 25% by in an effort to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the nation’s freight transportation activities.

The final standards are expected to lower CO2 emissions by. Consumer average fuel economy (CAFE) was first enacted by Congress in to reduce energy consumption by increasing fuel economy standards of cars and light trucks.

NHTSA sets fuel economy standards for cars and light trucks sold in the U.S., while the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calculates average fuel economy for each manufacturer.

Administration tightened fuel-economy mandates several times. In springthe EPA and NHTSA finalized standards for light-duty vehicles for model years (MY) – Two and a half years later, the agencies finalized fleet-wide mandates for MY – The regulations.

Light duty truck fuel economy trends from model year through are examined, with special emphasis placed on model year Actual production volumes are given for model years through Data for and model years include EPA estimates of.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA, pronounced "NITZ-ah") is an agency of the U.S. federal government, part of the Department of describes its mission as "Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle-related crashes" related to Transportation safety in the United States.

As part of its activities, NHTSA is charged with writing and enforcing Federal. Since Day 1 of the Trump presidency, the auto industry has been hoping to re-negotiate the deal it struck with the Obama administration on auto and light truck fuel efficiency standards (CAFE) for the period through Unlike light-duty fuel economy standards, which mainly affect gasoline consumption, standards for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles will primarily affect diesel fuel consumption.

As such, diesel consumption by medium- and heavy-duty vehicles in the Phase 2 Standards case is 18% lower ( million boe/d) in compared to the Reference case. President Barack Obama delivers remarks on fuel efficiency standards for model year cars and light-duty trucks during an event at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., J Seated behind the President are at left are auto industry executives and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

For fleets, one of these strategies might be the fuel strategy. Even in a new year, fleet managers are challenged to get more bang for fuel bucks. Here is a sample fuel strategy framework that is powered by data from fuel monitoring systems for trucks.
