Doubt Raised Over Final 54.5 MPG Mileage Rules

Fuel economy bill

Detroit Bureau - August 21, 2012

A week after the EPA was expect­ed to for­mal­ize its pro­posed 54.5 mpg mileage rules for 2025 it appears the Oba­ma Admin­is­tra­tion could be months away from lock­ing things down.

Despite the reluc­tant buy-in of most man­u­fac­tur­ers there appears to still be some heat­ed oppo­si­tion to the Cor­po­rate Aver­age Fuel Econ­o­my, or CAFE update – which would require the indus­try to increase mileage by about 50% over the already strict guide­lines now in place for 2016.
