Test For Mpg In New Cars

EDM number 1584 in 2017-19, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 05/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Roads.

That this House notes the changes which came into effect on 1 September 2018 regarding how new cars are tested for miles per gallon assessment; recognises that millions of motorists over many years expressed annoyance and anger at the previous tests, the results of which grossly overestimated miles per gallon only achievable in a totally unrealistic way; and calls for the new test to be monitored in such a way that motorists can have confidence that the mpg figure they see advertised is achievable in real world driving circumstances rather than carefully controlled lab conditions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 8 MPs.
