Carbon Footprint from Fuel Consumption

Output: Press calculate

Formula: CF = litersOfGasoline × 2.3 kg CO2 per liter

The carbon footprint resulting from gasoline consumption can be estimated by multiplying the amount of gasoline used by the average emissions of carbon dioxide per liter of gasoline burned. Specifically, the combustion of 1 liter of gasoline produces approximately 2.3 kilograms of CO2. This does not account for the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions associated with fuel production, just the direct emissions from combustion.
