Why our cars use more fuel than advertised
In 2015, there were more than 18 million registered vehicles on Australian roads.
According to a report from the Australian Automobile Association, our cars are using nearly 25% more fuel than advertised.
The same report also found that hybrid electric cars were emitting four times more greenhouse gas than consumers were being lead to believe.
