Continuing with two urban legends that the old folks used to talk about !

2. Myth - Fuel economy decreases as the vehicle ages.

Will your car become less efficient with time? To ensure that your original spec remain the same, it’s essential that you take good care of your car, as EPA states ‘vehicles that are 10 or even 15 years old will experience little decrease in fuel economy if properly maintained’. Then buying a new car should not be based on the assumption that fuel economy decrease with time, but on the fact that you’re now ready to lay your hands on a vehicle that greener and even more efficient.

3. Myth - The federal government tests fuel economy for all vehicles

Vehicles that exceed 8,500 pounds and are used to do duty for passengers such as Ford F250/350, Chevrolet/GMC 2500/3500, and Dodge 2500/3500 are not subject to testing. However, the government is doing tests on most passenger cars and light-duty trucks.
