The UK's new car fuel economy label helps consumers to compare the carbon emissions, fuel costs and vehicle tax for different cars. Over 90% of new car dealerships in the UK now use this voluntary colour-coded label in their showrooms. Following the success of this scheme, the UK's used car fuel economy label was launched in 2009 with support from dealerships, manufacturers, the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and Government. To date over quarter of a million labels have been circulated into the used car market and nearly 2,000 used car dealers have signed up to this voluntary scheme
