An essential resource before you buy a vehicle

EnerGuide for Vehicles, the definitive guide to fuel economy

Few of us really know the fuel consumption of our vehicles. We may have a rough idea of how far we can travel on a $50 fillup, but that’s a pretty poor measure since fuel tanks vary in size and gas prices are always changing.

The real measure of a vehicle’s fuel economy is how many litres it consumes to go 100 kilometres, or its imperial system equivalent, how many miles you go on a gallon. And the very best place to get unbiased comparisons between vehicles is Natural Resources Canada’s fuel consumption ratings search tool. It’s a database that lists the official fuel economy of every make and model of vehicle sold in Canada since 1995. It allows you to find the best ones, or compare the models you’re considering. An invaluable tool for any vehicle buyer!

And – here’s a great two-minute video about other ways you can improve your fuel economy.
