8.78 x 10-3 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

**Ken**, Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 12:12amYes. 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
