Government launches eco scheme for used cars

A colour-coded label to tell customers how green used cars are has been launched by the government.

The 'Used Car Fuel Economy Label' is a voluntary scheme and so far 1000 dealers have signed up. It follows on from a similar scheme launched for new cars in 2005.

Information displayed on the label includes CO2 emissions, the estimated fuel cost over 12,000 miles and fuel economy.

Dealers can choose to just label cars up to two years old or vehicles manufactured after 1 March 2001.

“Running costs and environmental performance are increasingly important to new and used car buyers,” said minister for transport Sadiq Khan. “I am therefore delighted that the new car label is now joined by a similar used car label.”

AA president Edmund King said research shows more motorists are putting fuel efficiency first when buying new and used cars.

“However, used car buyers are currently kept in the dark regarding fuel efficiency when looking at used cars on dealer’s forecourts. In an AA panel survey, 91 per cent supported a fuel economy label on used cars, so with this launch they will be better informed about future running costs.”

I always prefer you to visit

I always prefer you to visit Canada for skiing in holidays you will definitely enjoy there because Canada's mountains or hills are perfect ski and snowboard holiday destinations. Most resorts have their roots in the 1960s when pioneers began seeking out slopes with the right pitch and the best snow.Canada Skiing Holidays.
