The Personal Vehicles Initiative (PVI) encourages and assists motorists to buy, drive and maintain their vehicles in energy-efficient ways that save fuel and money, and emphasizes how such efforts also reduce vehicle emissions.

The program also provides resource materials to driver educators for fuel-efficiency training to novice drivers and provides Web-based communications tools that support and encourage the development of new initiatives of local governments, industry and associations to promote fuel efficiency. PVI also offers information on opportunities to use alternative fuels.
