UMTRI: Average new vehicle fuel economy in US in February hit 25.2 mpg

The average fuel economy (window-sticker value) of new vehicles sold in the US in February hit 25.2 mpg (9.3 l/100 km)—up 0.1 mpg from the revised value for January, and up 5.1 mpg from the value for October 2007, according to the latest monthly report from Dr. Michael Sivak and Brendan Schoettle at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI).

The University of Michigan Eco-Driving Index (EDI)—an index that estimates the average monthly emissions of greenhouse gases generated by an individual US driver—stood at 0.78 in December (the lower the value the better).

This value indicates that the average new-vehicle buyer produced 22% lower emissions in December 2013 than in October 2007. The EDI takes into account both vehicle fuel economy and distance driven (the latter relying on data that are published with a two-month lag).
