Fuel Economy Database by NEA
While searching for details of a van that my mom was intending to purchase, I found out about this awesome database by the National Environment Agency. If anyone of you ever had trouble making a direct comparison between cars for fuel economy, this will help a lot. It’s a database with every single model of vehicle (I suppose) that is registered in Singapore.
This probably came as part with the mandatory Fuel Economy Labelling Scheme following the inclusion of motor vehicles as registrable goods under Environmental Protection and Management Act (Cap. 94A). The only problem I see with this database is the likelihood that it goes into the bin of white elephants. You see, NEA had a revamp of their website some time back, and this database is not linked from any of the new pages as far as I can search. I have this habit of trying to back-track any interesting website that I find, and the furthest I got from the main page is the Fuel Economy Labelling Scheme page. The only way to get to this database is by searching on Google.
The good news however, is that I did try to find the latest cars in the market, and I found cars registered in 2011. Check it out if you are aiming for a new car, and wants a comparison for the most fuel economical car out there!
