California raised its fuel economy standard for state agencies that purchase passenger vehicles to 38 mpg starting July 1, according to a memo from the Department of General Services.
 
The rule replaces the 2008 minimum fuel economy standard of 27.5 mpg. The standard for light-duty trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles remains at 22.2 mpg.
 
To obtain these averages, agencies must supplement vehicle purchases that don’t meet the minimum fuel economy with vehicles that exceed it. The ruling affects all state organizations.
