The federal government implemented a new 5-cycle test method to replace the 2-cycle method. It now takes into account air conditioner usage, cold temperature operation, and higher-speed driving with more rapid braking and acceleration for more realistic numbers.
While the 5-cycle fuel efficiency ratings are different than the 2-cycle ratings, actual fuel efficiency has not changed – the way it is calculated has.
