From 1 January 2001 the windscreens of all new passenger vehicles, four-wheel drives and light commercial vehicles sold in Australia will carry a fuel consumption label which will give details of how many litres of fuel the vehicle uses to travel 100 kilometres when driving around the city. The labelling scheme is designed to stimulate demand for more fuel-efficient vehicles, and to produce environmental benefits, not least by reducing GHG emissions.

This record is superseded by:Fuel consumption labelling standard (ADR81/02) and fuel consumption label
