How much carbon dioxide is produced when different fuels are burned?
|Diesel fuel and heating oil||161.3|
|Gasoline (without ethanol)||157.2|
Consequently, how much carbon dioxide is produced by burning a gallon of gas?
About 19.64 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) are produced from burning a gallon of gasoline that does not contain ethanol. About 22.38 pounds of CO2 are produced by burning a gallon of diesel fuel.
How much co2 does a liter of gas produce?
This process produces carbon dioxide (CO2). Burning 1 L of gasoline produces approximately 2.3 kg of CO2. This means that the average Canadian vehicle, which burns 2 000 L of gasoline every year, releases about 4 600 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere.
How much co2 does a gallon of ethanol produce?
Burning a gallon of E10 produces about 17.6 pounds of CO2 that is emitted from the fossil fuel content. If the CO2 emissions from ethanol combustion are included, then about 18.9 pounds of CO2 are produced when a gallon of E10 is combusted.
