  2. For fuel economy standards, see DOT/NHTSA rulemaking documents.
  3. All Federal Register Notices in text and Adobe Acrobat PDF format can also be found on GPO Access Web sites around the country (A list of all such sites can be found at:  Access GPO ).  Besides offering the PDF format, these also allow more search options than the EPA Web site.
