40 CFR 600.209-95 - Calculation of fuel economy values for labeling.

§ 600.209-95 Calculation of fuel economy values for labeling.
(a) For the purposes of calculating the city model type fuel economy value for labeling the manufacturer shall:
(1)
(i) For general labels for gasoline-fueled, diesel-fueled, alcohol-fueled, and natural gas-fueled automobiles multiply the city model type fuel economy value determined in § 600.207 (b), by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(ii) For general labels for alcohol dual fuel and natural gas dual fuel automobiles:
(A) Multiply the city model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using gasoline or diesel test fuel as determined in § 600.207 (b)(5)(i) by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; and
(B) Multiply the city model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using alcohol or natural gas test fuel as determined in § 600.207 (b)(5)(ii) by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(2)
(i) For specific labels for gasoline-fueled, diesel-fueled, alcohol-fueled, and natural gas-fueled automobiles, multiply the city model type fuel economy value determined in § 600.206 (a)(2)(iii), by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(ii) For specific labels for alcohol dual fuel and natural gas dual fuel automobiles:
(A) Multiply the city model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using gasoline or diesel test fuel as determined in § 600.206 (a)(2)(iii) and (4)(i) by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; and
(B) Multiply the city model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using alcohol or natural gas test fuel as determined in § 600.206 (a)(2)(iii) and (4)(ii) by 0.90, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg.
(b) For the purposes of calculating the highway model type fuel economy value for labeling the manufacturer shall:
(1)
(i) For general labels for gasoline-fueled, diesel-fueled, alcohol-fueled, and natural gas-fueled automobiles, multiply the highway model type fuel economy value determined in § 600.207 (b), by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(ii) For general labels for alcohol dual fuel and natural gas dual fuel automobiles:
(A) Multiply the highway model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using gasoline or diesel test fuel as determined in § 600.207 (b)(5)(i) by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; and
(B) Multiply the highway model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using alcohol or natural gas test fuel as determined in § 600.207 (b)(5)(ii) by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(2)
(i) For specific labels for gasoline-fueled, diesel-fueled, alcohol-fueled, and natural gas-fueled automobiles, multiply the highway model type fuel economy value determined in § 600.206 (a)(iii), by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; or
(ii) For specific labels for alcohol dual fuel and natural gas dual fuel automobiles:
(A) Multiply the highway model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using gasoline or diesel test fuel as determined in § 600.206 (a)(2)(iii) and (4)(i) by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg; and
(B) Multiply the highway model type fuel economy calculated from the tests performed using alcohol or natural gas test fuel as determined in § 600.206 (a)(2)(iii) and (4)(ii) by 0.78, rounding the product to the nearest whole mpg.
(c) If the resulting city value determined in paragraph (a) of this section exceeds the resulting highway value determined in paragraph (b) of this section, the city value will be set equal to the highway value.
(d) For the purposes of calculating the combined fuel economy for a model type, to be used in determining annual fuel costs under § 600.307, the manufacturer shall (except as provided for in paragraph (d)(2) of this section):
(1)
(i) For gasoline-fueled, diesel-fueled, alcohol-fueled, and natural gas-fueled automobiles, harmonically average the unrounded city and highway values, determined in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (b)(1)(i), or (a)(2)(i) and (b)(2)(i) of this section weighted 0.55 and 0.45 respectively, and round to the nearest whole mpg. (An example of this calculation procedure appears in appendix II of this part); or
(ii) For alcohol dual fuel and natural gas dual fuel automobiles, harmonically average the unrounded city and highway values from the tests performed using gasoline or diesel test fuel as determined in paragraphs (a)(1)(ii)(A) and (b)(1)(ii)(A), or (a)(2)(ii)(A) and (b)(2)(ii)(A) of this section.
(2) If the resulting city value determined in paragraph (a) of this section exceeds the resulting highway value determined in paragraph (b) of this section, the combined fuel economy will be set equal to the highway value, rounded to the nearest whole mpg.
