THe FTC is resuming review of Fuel Economy Guide
The Federal Trade Commission is resuming its regulatory review of the Fuel Economy Guide. The agency seeks comments on potential updates to the guide, which helps facilitate the use of fuel economy information in advertising.
The FTC issued the “Guide Concerning Fuel Economy Advertising for New Automobiles” in 1975 to prevent deceptive fuel economy advertising and facilitate the use of fuel economy information in advertising. In 2009, the agency sought public comments on proposed changes to the guide, and in 2011 postponed its review of the guide pending new EPA fuel economy labeling requirements and review of the FTC’s Alternative Fuel Rule.
