2008 Saturn Fuel Economy Ratings

Starting with the 2008 model year, the Environmental Protection Agency revised methods for calculating vehicle fuel-economy label numbers. The agency took into account real-world driving conditions, like increased highway speed limits, air conditioning use, and colder temperatures, so the numbers would be closer to what drivers actually get. As a result, most 2008 vehicles sold in the U.S. will see a reduction in published gas mileage ratings vs. last year's ratings. For easy reference, Saturn created this handy reference card to show the 2008 models and their mileage estimates for city and highway use.
