At Chrysler LLC, engineers took similar measures on several models but also recalibrated gas pedals, changed to more efficient air conditioning compressors and tweaked transmission shift intervals to make them more efficient.

For instance, Chrysler was able to push the highway mileage of the Sebring and Avenger midsize sedans to 31 mpg, up from 30.

"These are things that we can do right now for the customer," said spokeswoman Sue Keighron. "They may have been changes that we would have made, but not necessarily as quickly as we are doing now."
