The metric ton of CO2 product per gallons of gas can be calculated with the following.
8.78 x 103 metric tons of CO2 are emitted per gallon of gas.
Let say the gallon of gas is 1288. Would the CO2 produced be around 11.3 tons? Thanks

Yes. The units for emission in this problem is tons/gallon. So if you multiply by gallons [ gallons *tons/gallons] you cancel out the gallons and are left with units in tons

If it was 1040 gallons it would be around 9.1 tons right? Thanks Ken
