July 24th, 2009 No Comments

(My friend beat me to the punch on this one. Thanks for the research Sandy!)

1 Barrel Oil = 42 US Galloons

8.8Kgs or 19.4Lbs CO2 (carbon dioxide) is emitted / Gallon of Gas

2009 Smart ForTwo
Fuel Capacity: 8.7Gallon 
MPG 36/41  (356Miles/Tank)
Based on 12K/Yr 12,000/356Miles = 34Tanks (12K highway miles)
34 Tanks * 8.7Gals = 295 Gal / yr
295Gals * 19.4Lbs = 5738 LBS of Carbon Dioxide emitted

2009 Toyota Prius
Fuel Capacity  11.9 Gallon
MPG 46/50    11.9 * 50 = 595 Miles / Tank
Based on 12K / Yr Miles driven   12000 / 595Miles = 20 Tanks /Yr
20 Tanks * 11.7 = 234 Gallons / Yr
234 Gallons * 19.4 LBS = 4539 LBS of CO2 emitted

Toyota Prius is Greener as it leaves a smaller Carbon Footprint with more mileage!
