Corporate average fuel economy: car fleets in major markets 2011-2025

Corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards in the United States indicate that new passenger cars will average 55.2 miles per gallon in 2025, meaning that drivers of typical passenger vehicles in the U.S. will have to stop more often to refuel than Chinese and European motorists. By 2025, new passenger vehicles in Europe are expected to average 64.38 miles per gallon, while new cars on Chinese roads are anticipated to travel 57.85 miles per gallon. For every 100 miles driven, that is about 1.8 gallons in the tank in the United States, compared to just over 1.7 gallons in China and about 1.6 gallons in Europe.
