Excuse me? Did you say SIX miles per gallon?

Before I received this action alert from the Sierra Club, I thought Hummers were the worst offenders. Read on…

We rely on large trucks and buses every day for the transportation and the delivery of goods across the country. Some heavy-duty vehicles – including 18-wheelers, city buses, delivery trucks, and Class 8 tractor trailers – can cover as much 150,000 miles each year.

Unlike passenger vehicles, these vehicles – from large pickups to freight trucks and garbage trucks – have never been subject to federal fuel efficiency or global warming tailpipe pollution standards. Right now, the biggest trucks get only about six miles to the gallon!

Tell the EPA along with Department of Transportation to make sure the biggest trucks on the road emit less global warming pollution and cut our dependence on oil.

If you have not done so already, please take action.
