Formula: CO2_emissions = gallons × 8.887

To estimate the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from gasoline, you can use the conversion factor of 8.887 kg of CO2 per gallon of gasoline consumed. This factor originates from the assumption that burning one gallon of gasoline produces approximately 8.887 kilograms of CO2. This formula is useful for calculating the environmental impact of fuel consumption in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The parameter gallons refers to the volume of gasoline burned, and the result is the total CO2 emissions in kilograms.
