EPA, DOT Release New Fuel Economy Stickers for New Cars

The new stickers offer significantly more useful information for comparing a new vehicle's gas mileage to other cars, including how much a year's worth of gas will cost you and the impact of that car on the environment.

The new stickers also include a QR code that you can scan with a smart phone to download the info and access more data.

From the joint EPA/DOT press release:

"The new labels, which are the most dramatic overhaul to fuel economy labels since the program began more than 30 years ago, will provide more comprehensive fuel efficiency information, including estimated annual fuel costs, savings, as well as information on each vehicle's environmental impact."
