  • WASHINGTON -- Consumers Union is lobbying Congress to require public disclosure of fuel economy estimates for heavy-duty pickups so buyers can make more informed choices, after its tests found diesel-powered trucks underperformed gasoline-powered trucks.Automakers are required to post window stickers on new light-duty vehicles showing estimated fuel economy, but there is no such mandate for trucks with gross vehicle weights exceeding 8,500 pounds.The latest issue of the public interest group's magazine, Consumer Reports, includes a report ​ about tests it conducted on four popular heavy-duty pickups: the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Ford F-250, Ram 2500 and Nissan Titan XD.

  • If more people use ride-sharing services instead of driving their own cars, traffic will be reduced, according to Lyft. Less traffic means less need for wide city streets with multiple lanes, and the company has an idea of what to do with that extra space. To that end, Lyft teamed with architecture firm Perkins+Will and transportation consultancy Nelson/Nygaard to remodel Los Angeles's Wiltshire Boulevard for a hypothetical future full of autonomous ride sharing. The concept, shown to CNN, reduces the street's 10 lanes down to three narrower lanes for cars, and adds dedicated lanes for self-driving buses. Lyft thinks this will incentivize the use of shared autonomous vehicles.What did designers do with the extra space? Some of it is taken up by wider sidewalks; there's also added green space and bike lanes. It's not too far off from the remodeling of New York City's Times Square, where traffic flow has been reduced to make room for pedestrian plazas and bike ..

  • Pep Guardiola hopes the successes of the past week help him convince his Manchester City players they can win this season's crunch games. City thrashed a 10-man Liverpool side 5-0 last Saturday before opening their Champions League campaign with a 4-0 rout of Feyenoord in Rotterdam.City struggled against their top-six rivals last term and consequently failed to sustain a title challenge. On top of that they were unable to win away in the Champions League - play-off round aside - and crashed out at the last-16 stage."Of course I am so satisfied," Guardiola said. "Of course, with 11 against 11 against Liverpool the game was equal. Eleven against 10 was much better but sometimes it's not easy to play 11 against 10, and we did it so well."People maybe thought it was easy to win in Feyenoord but going away in Europe is always so complicated. They didn't have one chance and that's so, so important."We did very good things but my feeling is the way we play we can impr..
