FTC Approve Fuel Guide Changes

FTC Approve Fuel Guide Changes Featured

The Federal Trade Commission announced that the agency has approved changes to the Fuel Economy Guide.
Adopted in 1975, the Guide (formally, the “Guide Concerning Fuel Economy Advertising for New Automobiles”) helps advertisers avoid making unfair and deceptive claims.
In 2016, the FTC sought public comment on proposed changes to the Guide. Based on comments received, the Commission approved changes to account for a number of new issues, such as driving range and fuel economy claims for alternative fueled vehicles, including electric and flex-fueled models.
The changes also match the Guide with current Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration fuel economy labeling rules. The amendments will become effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.
