This site allows you to look up your vehicle and determine how your car tailpipe emissions rank to other vehicles in its category and determines how environmentally friendly, also known as "green", your car is. (Note: before you look up your vehicle look at "EPA's rating system" to learn how the scale works in pounds of smog-forming pollution Per 15,000 Miles and look at graphs).
