"Your car uses considerably more fuel than you think."
"For some models differ 50-60% between the manufacturers own task and the real consumption."
" It shows the magazine Motors tests."
"Together with a large study by the european think-tank Transport & Environment, the magazine Motor tested the fuel consumption of several large brands."
"the Result is remarkable."
"– As consumers, we are both deceived, and more or less lawless, which is a big scandal, " says Carl Erik Stjernvall, technical expert at Motormännen, in a press release."
"Automakers do not need to report the actual fuel consumption in the model but only the results of the laboratory tests. So, even in a car that is marketed as fuel-efficient, consumption to be considerably higher."
"Impossible to reclaim"
"the compensation is next to impossible. Manufacturers customize the cars properties so that they can fuel and utsläppstester. "
"According to General Complaints is neither the car manufacturers or the sellers legally bound to the information about fuel consumption so long as they are based on the EU's testkörcykel. "
"–A completely unreasonable situation, says Carl-Erik Stjernvall.nSkillnaden between the advertised and actual fuel consumption has increased dramatically. In 2001, the difference was an average of 9 per cent, in 2012 it had increased to 28, and 2015 was the difference in average 42%. Some models use up to 50-60% more than what manufacturers state."
"– For the individual motorist, it is difficult to obtain the consumption of the own car. As the differences increase, there is still some hope. After the PSA is now going out with Peugeots and Citroens real fuel consumption. We have asked other automakers for the same thing, and got different answers. Several car manufacturers welcome it, among others, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mazda and Ford. But Kia Motors believes that it complies with the regulatory framework. The most remarkable feature is that Volvo refuses to answer our questions, " says Carl-Erik Stjernvall technical expert at Motormännen."
