Most Americans Don’t Care How Fuel Economy is Achieved, Says Study

Although nearly all American drivers are at least somewhat concerned about fuel economy, a majority don’t care how a vehicle saves fuel – just that it does, say University of Michigan researchers.  According to the report, a little more than half (52%) of respondents said it didn’t matter to them how a vehicle saves fuel and reduces emissions. However, 24% listed engine improvements and 20% cited alternative fuels as their preference for improving fuel economy.
