“This news will raise more questions for consumers.” – response to Mitsubishi statement on fuel tests

“This news will raise more questions for consumers,” Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director responds to Mitsubishi announcement on fuel efficiency test.


“People must be able to trust both car fuel efficiency and emissions claims, so after the VW scandal this news will raise more questions for consumers.  Manufacturers need to come clean about their tests including what the impact is for UK car owners.


“The government must get to the bottom of these claims, quickly introduce new tests and ensure customers are getting compensation where appropriate.”

Notes to editors:


As part of our new campaign Come Clean On Fuel Claims we want:

  • All car manufacturers to announce whether their emissions and fuel economy tests have been manipulated within the next seven days;

  • The Government must immediately publish a timetable for a genuinely independent investigation and ensure any consumers found to be affected can get easy access to redress; and

  • The European Commission must announce how they will bring forward new tests with full and proper independent oversight by the end of the year.
