Back in 2009, the vehicles ranked worst for fuel consumption were the Lamborghini Murcielago and its roadster counterpart tied for first place with an annual fuel consumption rate of 4260 Liters of fuel. Following these two vehicle were the Chevrolet Express 3500 and its FFV (‘Flexible’ Fuel Vehicle) counterpart, consuming 4000 liters of fuel annually. Following these were the GMC Savana and its FFV counterpart also at 4000.
Although at the time and not the worst fuel consuming vehicles on the road, GMC and Chevrolet alone took seven of the ten top spots for worst fuel consumption back in 2009.
It’s been four years now; not only has that number risen to eight out of ten and GMC and Chevrolet are tied for first second and third for the worst vehicles fuel consumption but these two brands are owned by the same vehicle manufacturer: General Motors.
Somehow in four years the Chevrolet Express 3500 vehicle line has gone virtually undetected as it rose to having the worst fuel economy from 4260 Liters of fuel to 4660 in a matter of four short years. To put that in perspective, the 2013 Toyota Midsize Prius consumes only 820 Liters per year. This vehicle is literally consuming over five times that, the fuel value of a small street worth of your average vehicle. General Motors is single handedly killing our fossil fuel resources.
Back in 2012, ranked by fuel consumption for the companies that produced vehicles that produced the worst fuel consumption were Chevrolet which took four spots including number one and GMC taking four more. Meaning that these two companies alone have produced eight of the top ten worst cars for fuel consumption. The list from 2013 was almost identical, with both companies taking the exact same spots. This has not changed in four years.
It was just four days ago when @GM tweeted about their commitment to environmental conservation, The fuel efficiency of new GM vehicles was even mentioned.
