DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Environmental Protection Agency will test fuel efficiency claims made by Ford regarding two of their new vehicles.

The automaker claims that the C-Max hybrid and Fusion hybrid gets 47-miles per gallon.  Chris Grundler, who heads the EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality, says the integrity of the sticker is very important and he's confident the sticker is sound.

Last month the EPA said it would review the miles-per-gallon on the vehicles after "Consumer Reports" reported the models fell short of their sticker numbers.
