  1.  THE  DEPARTMENT SHALL DEVELOP A MODEL SIGN WHICH PROVIDES CONSUMER
FUEL  CONSUMPTION  INFORMATION.  THE  MODEL  SIGN  SHALL   BE   ENTITLED
"GALLONS-PER-MILE (GPM) FUEL SAVINGS GUIDE". THE MODEL SIGN AND INFORMA-
TION  REGARDING  POSTING  REQUIREMENTS SHALL BE AVAILABLE ON THE DEPART-
MENT'S WEBSITE.
  2. THE "GALLONS-PER-MILE (GPM) FUEL SAVINGS GUIDE" SIGN SHALL BEAR THE
FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
  (A) THE TITLE HEADING "GALLONS-PER-MILE (GPM) FUEL SAVINGS GUIDE" WITH
A SUBTITLE HEADING "WHY USE GPM?";
  (B) AN EXPLANATION OF HOW TO CALCULATE GPM AND THE PURPOSE OF THE  GPM
MEASUREMENT;
  (C) A CHART WITH FOUR COLUMNS INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
  (I)  MILES-PER-GALLON (MPG) FROM TEN MPG TO FIFTY MPG IN INCREMENTS OF
