Sounds to me like they are trying to optimize a website that could possibly determine what kind of new vehicle would be best suited for an individual's commute... Not at all a bad idea for the general public, who wouldn't give a second thought to some of the craziness that goes on here!

F/E Calculations based on map routing for one's current vehicle vs an alternative new vehicle stating cost of ownership, insurance, fuel cost, etc... Would help put the potential savings of changing vehicles or "trading up" into perspective!

Keep in mind that this is all speculation as I have no affiliation with GSA other than there somewhat outrageous prices on items they sell to other government agencies!!!

While it may not affect the majority of us here, I would definitely look into participating in it if it is for the greater good... Not to mention being an outlier in whatever FE data they may be populating! Haha.
