End the fuel rip-off

End the fuel rip-off

CHOICE thinks you should be able to trust car makers' fuel efficiency claims. 

The VW scandal shows that we can’t trust the car industry to self-regulate. 

Australia is the only advanced economy to have no compulsory standards for fuel efficiency or greenhouse gas emissions.

Unless we act, Australia could become a dumping ground for more expensive to run dirty cars.

We need fuel efficiency claims that Australians can trust, backed by genuinely independent testing and worlds’ best standards to help save on household fuel costs. Read more here.

Join our call for car manufacturers to come clean and end the fuel rip-off

In the wake of Volkswagen’s admission that it rigged official emissions tests on more than 11 million vehicles worldwide, we want car makers to come clean and we need a better system to test fuel efficiency claims.

Dear Paul Fletcher, Minister for Territories, Local Government and Major Projects and the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries,

I want urgent action to end the fuel rip off:

1. VW and other major car manufacturers must come clean on how many Australians are affected by the scandal and offer redress

2. The Australian Government must ensure genuinely independent tests for cars sold here

3. Testing procedures must close the growing gap between laboratory and ‘real world’ performance

4. Australia must adopt compulsory standards for vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse emissions so we don’t become a dumping ground for dirty, costly-to-run vehicles
