EECA tyre approval mark
EECA, the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority, has introduced an ENERGYWISE approval mark for fuel-efficient tyres. This mark has been developed to help consumers choose tyres that will save fuel while reassuring them they’re buying a safe tyre.
For a tyre to receive the approval mark, it must meet the mark’s minimum standards for braking in the wet and fuel efficiency. It must also meet all safety and construction standards for tyres used on vehicles here.
We support EECA’s tyre-approval mark and think it’ll encourage consumers to demand that fuel efficient tyres are fitted to their vehicles. We will continue to produce our tyre tests, based on track testing, to highlight the worst, better and best tyres on the market.
Also www.energywise.govt.nz has a new tool to help you find fuel-efficient tyres for your car. A fuel-efficient tyre is one that meets minimum fuel-efficiency standards and minimum standards for braking in the wet.
