A lot of publications marshal facts and figures to influence car-buying decisions. The latest, 2003 edition of "ACEEE's Green Book" is no exception, though it doesn't provide the usual fodder of top speeds or zero-to-60 acceleration times.

Rather, the publication offers lesser-known measures like the "environmental damage index" of a car, plus estimates of the health care costs to society from the pollution produced by a particular model. The Green Book is published by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, an environmental group in Washington.
