## How much CO2 is produced per kg of petrol?

Table of Contents

What do I need to know? Burning 1 L of gasoline produces approximately 2.3 kg of CO2.

## How much CO2 does 1m3 natural gas produce?

CO2 emission factor for Natural gas is: 0.056 kg CO2eq/MJ energy equivalent. Since the higher heating value of Natural Gas is: 38 – 39 MJ/m3, CO2 emission factor would be about 2.2 kg CO2eq per m3 of natural gas.

**How do you calculate CO2 emissions from fuel?**

Carbon dioxide emissions per barrel of crude oil are determined by multiplying heat content times the carbon coefficient times the fraction oxidized times the ratio of the molecular weight of carbon dioxide to that of carbon (44/12).

**How many kg of CO2 are in a litre of diesel?**

2.62 kgs

Burning a litre of diesel produces around 2.62 kgs of carbon dioxide, whereas petrol has a lower carbon content and produces about 2.39 kgs.

### How much CO2 does a litre of petrol produce?

around 2.4 kg per litre

CO2 from fuel use: The CO2 emissions from petrol and diesel are around 2.4 kg per litre [1], i.e. 10.9 kg per gallon (since 1 gallon is 4.546 litres).

### How much CO2 is produced by a gallon of gasoline?

Burning 6.3 pounds of gasoline produces 20 pounds of carbon dioxide.

**How many grams of CO2 does a car produce per km?**

The average new car emits 120.1g/km of CO.

**What is the volume of carbon dioxide in kg m2?**

Volume. Carbon dioxide weighs 0.001836 gram per cubic centimeter or 1.836 kilogram per cubic meter, i.e. it’s density is equal to 1.836 kg/m³. The density was measured at 25°C (77°F or 298.15K) at standard atmospheric pressure. In Imperial or US customary measurement system, the Carbon dioxide density is equal to 0.114617736…

#### How much CO2 is in a gallon of gasoline?

The amount of carbon dioxide emitted per gallon of motor gasoline burned is 8.89 × 10-3 metric tons, as calculated in the “Gallons of gasoline consumed” section above. A barrel equals 42 gallons. A typical gasoline tanker truck contains 8,500 gallons. Calculation

#### How much CO2 is produced from 5 kg of L-gas?

1 kg of L-gas consists for 61,4% of carbon, or 614 grammes of carbon per kg of L-gas. In order to combust this carbon to CO2, 1638 grammes of oxygen is needed. The sum is then 614 + 1638 = 2252 grammes of CO2/kg of L-gas. An average consumption of 5 kg / 100 km then corresponds to 5 kg x 2252 g/kg = 113 g CO2/km. High-calorific:

**How many grams of CO2 are in a 100 km?**

An average consumption of 4,2 kg / 100 km then corresponds to 4,2 kg x 2666 g/kg = 112 g of CO2/km.
