Title: Consumer Information on Fuel Economy, Emissions, and Alternative Fuel Usage 

This rulemaking would, as required by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) and promulgated under 49 USC section 32908 (g), develop and implement a consumer information campaign to: (1) improve understanding of automobile performance related to fuel economy, greenhouse gas emissions, and other pollutant emissions; (2) inform consumers of the benefits of using alternative fuels and the location of alternative fueling stations; (3) and increase awareness of automotive thermal management technologies. This rulemaking is the third, and final, phase of consumer information initiatives required by EISA. The first phase promulgated new Fuel Economy and Environment labels for new automobiles, and was finalized in May 2011 (2127-AK73). The second phase (2127-AK75), currently being developed, addresses EISA requirements to: affix a permanent and prominent display that identifies new automobiles that are capable of operating on alternative fuels; attach a label to the fuel tank filler compartment of alternative fuel vehicles; and include in the owner´s manual for vehicles capable of operating on alternative fuels information describing the benefits of using alternative fuels, including their renewable nature and environmental benefits .
