### How many grams of CO 2 are produced per gallon of gasoline?

This assumes the average gasoline vehicle on the road today has a fuel economy of about 22.0 miles per gallon and drives around 11,500 miles per year. Every gallon of gasoline burned creates about 8,887 grams of CO 2.

How do you calculate gas miles per gallon?

The formula for calculating Miles Per Gallon is simply miles driven divided by gallons used. So to calculate the miles driven you take the miles at the end of the tank and subtract the Miles at the start of the tank, and then you divide that by the total gallons of gas used. (end – start) = miles driven.

#### What is the formula for miles per gallon?

Miles per gallon means miles divided by gallons which is commonly written as mpg but also can be written m/g. So the formula is m= (m/g)*g because the g’s cancel out. So if you want to know g you have to move the m/g to the other side of the equation.

#### How do you calculate fuel mileage?

The formula to calculate gas mileage: Miles driven ÷ gallons used to refill the tank. Take the miles traveled (from the trip computer), divide that by the number of gallons used to refill the tank.

How many kWh are in a gallon of gasoline?

One liter of gasoline generates 8.8 kWh (according to Gasoline — 33.3kWh per US gallon ). A car typically has an average efficiency of 18-20% (see Internal combustion engine). Hence one liter of gasoline generates 1.76 kWh.
