EPA and DOE post emissions stats for autos

Two agencies are helping buyers who are looking for a new or used auto that's an environmentally conscious choice.

The Energy Department and Environmental Protection Agency have turbocharged their www.fueleconomy.gov site to include air pollution ratings of cars, light trucks and sport utility vehicles.

For each vehicle, the site provides not only the standard EPA gas mileage figures for city and highway driving, but also Energy's estimates for annual greenhouse gas emissions per vehicle and EPA's air pollution score on a scale from zero to 10.

Pull-down menus let consumers look up vehicles individually or compare similar cars. For used-car buyers, the site lists vehicles back to 1985.
