Australia's car industry unveiled plans on Tuesday to reduce fuel consumption of new passenger cars by about 18% by 2010 to help cut emissions of carbon dioxide blamed for global warming, Reuters reported. According to the news agency, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries said a voluntary code of practice set a target to cut the amount of fuel used by new cars to 6.8 litres per 100 km (68 miles) by 2010 from the 2001 level of 8.28 litres.
