Car CO2 emissions

Car Fuel Consumption

This website intends to give individuals an informed choice when buying a new or used car. It lists the fuel consumption, CO2, and other emissions performance figures of most cars, currently on the market in the UK and for the last 10 years.

Cars make a significant contribution to overall emissions of CO2 in the UK. Additionally, and especially in urban areas, road transport is also one of the major sources of emissions which are harmful to human health.

Research Your Car

Whether you are buying a new or used car, or just checking on the consumption and emissions of your existing car, use our database of makes and models to compare the published, optimal figures with your real world experience. For example, compare Ford Focus MPG figures with Honda Civic MPG figures. Or perhaps Vauxhall Corsa MPG data with VW Golf MPG data. Our database lists all makes and models of car manufactured over the last ten plus years, including Vauxhall Astra MPG, VW Polo MPG, Vauxhall Insignia MPG and BMW 3 series MPG as well as the recently popular Nissan Qashqai MPG.

Climate Change, often referred to as Global Warming, is considered to be one of the greatest environmental threats facing the World today. When petrol, diesel or certain alternative fuels are burnt for energy in an engine the main by-products are water and Carbon Dioxide (CO2). CO2, although not directly harmful to human health, is the most significant of the greenhouse gases contributing to Climate Change.
