It seems lately that the price of fuel is on a constant upward trend and with this in mind it is more important to try and avoid the most fuel demanding vehicles. There are things we can do which can help us as consumers to purchase more fuel efficient cars and trucks.
Last year Adam Hughes from associated content compiled a list of the ten worst fuel efficient trucks and SUVs. Top of the list was the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG which only returns 11mpg around the city, and only goes up to 15mpg on the highway. Finishing off the top three was the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 AWD; this achieves 12mpg in the city and 16mpg on the highway.
A great US government website called fueleconomy, is available with a whole host of information and tips to try and help you save money. You can compare different makes and types of vehicles including trucks fuel economy. There are also tools to help you work out what MPG you are getting from your vehicle, tips on more fuel efficient driving, and much more.
Cars.com also lets you compare many different classes of vehicles with mpg ratings for city and highway driving listed. Using guides like these will hopefully help you to save money when purchasing or using your car or truck.
