Here are some additional calculations. One gallon of gasoline yields 172 cubic feet of carbon dioxide. So 6000 gallons of gas used over the life of a 25 mpg Subaru would yield 1,032,000 cubic feet of carbon dioxide. In other words, it would create enough carbon dioxide to fill a room 100 ft. by 100 ft. with a 1032 ft. ceiling height.
