The uk's department of transport has launched a website designed to let car buyers choose the most
environmentally friendly vehicle. The site, qww.dft.gov.uk/ActOnco2, allows buyers to search models by
category, transmission and fuel type. It then provides them a list of the lowest co2 emitting models. "By
choosing the car with the most fuel efficient engine in its class, drivers could reduce the co2 emissions of
their engines by 24 percent and save a quarter on fuel costs," uk's transport minister Jim Fitzpatrick said.
The rankings were developed using emissions data from the Vehicle Certification Agency, the body responsible for conducting official tests on
class='UCASE'>co2 emissions.They were developed by What Car? magazine, based partly on groupings used by the
motor industry to classify cars and partly on surveys.
