The article offers information on a study on vehicle fuel efficiency in Germany that compares real-world results and official mileage figures issued by the European Union. The study was conducted by the non-profit International Council for Clean Transportation and reveals that the gap grew from eight percent in 2001 to 21 percent in 2010. The result illustrates the failure of actual carbon-dioxide emissions to fall as fast as some people may think.
