The 2018 Fuel Consumption Guide provides model-specific fuel consumption information about 2018 model year light-duty vehicles. The information can be used to compare the fuel consumption of different models and help you to select the most fuel-efficient vehicle that meets your everyday needs.

Fuel use is an ongoing expense and should be considered when purchasing or leasing a vehicle. Choosing the most fuel-efficient and appropriate size of vehicle, driving in a fuel-efficient manner, using your vehicle only when needed and following the manufacturer’s operation and maintenance recommendations for your vehicle can save you fuel and money year after year – even more if fuel prices rise.

The choices you make about the vehicle you buy and how you drive it also have a significant impact on the environment and our health. Greenhouse gases (GHGs), predominantly carbon dioxide (CO2), are produced when fuel is burned in your vehicle’s engine. CO2 emissions are directly proportional to the amount of fuel consumed – for every litre of gasoline used, about 2.3 kilograms (kg) of CO2 are generated. Although not directly harmful to our health, CO2 emissions contribute to climate change.

This guide is produced by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) in cooperation with vehicle manufacturers. NRCan thanks the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association and Global Automakers of Canada for their assistance in the production of the 2018 guide. Special thanks are extended to Environment and Climate Change Canada for collecting the fuel consumption data provided by vehicle manufacturers.
