Updating EPA Estimates?

The EPA has adjusted the highway, city and combined economy for my truck. Is it possible for me to update the EPA estimates on my fuelly page?

Your truck seems to have the right numbers. 13city 17 highway 15 combined?

Did you know that the EPA has been doing different kinds of testing for cars since 2008. They have also adjusted older cars' mpg since then. They've been doing that to reflect on the higher population of drivers out there, as well as higher speeds during their commute.

My Matrix was rated at 30/36 but in reality it is only rated at 26/33.

Im on the EPA site right now and it says 12 city 16 highway and 13 combined. And I know they always update for various reasons and we should be able to do that too.

If you send me a link to the page on the EPA site that has the numbers for your truck, I can update them.

The EPA doesn't make their new numbers available in a data format that we can use. So we can't update our listings across the board for every model. But if you send me that link for your model so I can verify the change, I can get it updated.

That link doesn't work Biggberger, but I got the link you sent to me via Fuelly mail. Those numbers should be updated now.
