CO2 Combustion Emissions

Mobile Combustion CO2 Emissions

CO2 emissions, which account for the majority of emissions from mobile sources, are directly related to the quantity of fuel combusted (e.g. gasoline, diesel, and CNG) and thus can be calculated using fuel consumption data.

The LGOP provides four methodologies for calculating mobile combustion CO2 emissions:

Recommended Approach: Known Fuel Use

Alternate Approach 1: Detailed Annual Mileage and Fuel Efficiency

Alternate Approach 2: Fuel Estimates Based on Dollars Spent

Alternate Approach 3: Proxy Year Fuel Use Data
