It was the speech of President Nixon, 18.April 1973, Congress has called in its programme of voluntary fuel economy, passenger cars.
In 1975, Congress to make voluntary programme begins with the 1977 model year and required requires each vehicle fuel economy. How much of the attention paid by the consumers ranged between headers provide a list of the price of gas.
Fuel economy labels may be about to get more attention than ever before.The biggest change since the late-1970s debut happens now when the plug-in vehicles, with all the electric or hybrid propulsion systems dealer showrooms to provide.
2011 Chevrolet Volt is scheduled to arrive in showrooms in the coming weeks and it is a new kind of fuel economy.
Volt must be capable of being alone in 25-50 miles on battery power, and then continue indefinitely in the region, strengthening the flight ban and extending the energy efficiency of Car petrol engine. depends on how it is used by the drivers, General Motors press release, the new label information, as well as I traveled to the mountainous terrain and climate into account.
General Motors and the US EPA, in conjunction with the design of the new label helps you understand what to expect when their position on the volt to consumers.Before the development of cars such as the volt plug-in for the calculation of the fulfilment of the fuel economy was simply one of the fuel tank, driving the vehicle and the distance between the plant and the number of the question of dividing the fuel, GM said.
Even if they don’t exhaust emissions of commercial vehicles, electric cars still use energy, so the “MPG equivalent” or MPGe, is determined by measuring the electricity usage, and conversion gallon of petrol on the basis of energy content. The classification is intended to cover the MPGe-to provide means for consumers to compare the effectiveness of the other cars in its segment in the volt.
Volt uses two sources — from the electricity grid and gasoline at the pump — with, depending on how far the car works and how often the battery is loaded, or a combination of both.
Label gives the volt MPGe 93 kilometres.   it says, the car is about 37 mpg combined city/highway driving a gas-only mode. Car uses approximately 36 kilowatt hours of electricity each 100-miles of electric driving, only the label says.Electricity in the United States, August 2010, the institution of the place of residence, the average retail price was around 12 cents/kwh, according to the u.s. Energy Information Administration.
The amount of the volt electrical fuel costs would be $ 4.32 100 miles, but many of the design of the add-ins to provide reduced rates during off-peak hours of the levying of the electric vehicle.New EPA label says, the volt can be recharged approximately four hours 240 volts.The collection of these types of devices is referred to as level 2, require special installation in your home.Although the EPA label gives the volt only electricity area 35 kilometres, depending on the practical drivers occur in their acceleration, and average speed, encountered the hills and the weather in mixed areas.
An example of a new label is followed by a description of the EPA with the information submitted.

MPG is responsible for the
MPG equivalent (MPGe) classification allows consumers to compare against the operating efficiency of the Electric cars that use traditional gasoline-powered internal combustion engines of the same class of pure EV vehicle, the vehicle shall be informed of all the electronic area hereinafter referred to as MPGe-rating.
When the vehicle operates in extended mode, the volt battery depleted uranium, it consumes fuel from the Fuel economy of on-board internal combustion. classification and labelling of dangerous substances in this box can be directly compared to the size of the type-approval of hydrogen powered vehicles, traditional petrol in the same class, the majority of the owners of volt. in the absence of any attempt to use their car to a pure EV mode daily commuting, this number may be a little irrelevant. Still volt also offer in connection with the operation of the fuel economy expanded.
How does this compare to the Andes
This chart shows how the volt and other electric vehicle type-approval of hydrogen powered vehicles compared with the traditional petrol as well as the overall efficiency of the exhaust emissions of the fuel economy of Combined.   is based on a mixture of waste electrical and electronic equipment in the region to extend the driving.
Examples: Charging routines
This chart, estimates of the overall fuel economy, the total cost of the operation of the electricity and energy, and other various volt electric vehicle mileage intervals for example, if the customer passes.   30 miles between charges on a daily basis, they are likely to export all the fuel ever but they use 10,9 kwh electricity 4 cents per mile the estimated costs. If the customer payments and never make it to the vehicle, they are likely to reach 37 MPG fuel economy and consumes more electricity not prosenttimääräisesti, 9 cents per mile cost accounting.
