New Find-a-Car App Brings Fuel Economy Right to Your Phone
Feb. 22, 2016
Tool puts information about fuel economy, manufacturer's suggested retail price, annual fuel cost, greenhouse gas emissions score, and other details at your fingertips.
With more car buyers than ever using the Internet to research their future vehicles, accessing information on fuel economy needs to be simple and convenient. To make searching easier on mobile devices, the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's FuelEconomy.gov recently released app versions of its popular Find-a-Car tool for iPhone and Android.
Like the Web version, the app features the fuel economy, manufacturer's suggested retail price, annual fuel cost, greenhouse gas emissions score, and other details for all commercially available cars in the United States dating back to 1984. For plug-in electric vehicles, entries also list the all-electric range. To find any vehicle, users simply enter the year, make, model, and relevant options of the car they are looking for.
Users can personalize their results by specifying annual mileage, percentage of driving in stop-and-go traffic, and local fuel costs. There's also an option to compare multiple vehicles at a time. The app version of the tool brings additional features unique to the mobile experience. Users can now save car models in a "garage," so that the information is immediately available. Vehicles can also quickly be added by scanning the QR code on any car's Fuel Economy Label.
Whether you're buying a new car or just curious about the miles per gallon of your current one, the new Find-a-Car app makes it simple to learn more about fuel economy. Download the app for yourself on the iTunes Store and Google Play.
