Big Fuel Savings Available in New Trucks
Strong standards can reduce freight truck fuel consumption by 40 percent

Fact Sheet
New federal fuel efficiency standards for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, which will be implemented in two phases, can dramatically reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from trucks on the nation's roads.
