Is Your Car’s Fuel Gauge Accurate?, So Long NSX and Avalon

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing the recently announced cancellation of the 2021 New York International Auto Show. We also talk about the impending discontinuation of the Acura NSX and Toyota Avalon. Jeanette McGee, Director of External Communications for the American Automobile Association (AAA), joins us to talk about gas prices, fuel-economy tips, and how to prep for a summer road-trip vacation in the age of COVID-19. Tom has  quiz on fuel-economy ratings for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands.
