FLOAT vs driving carbon emissions savings
|Fuel consumption||Time or distance / trip||CO2 emissions / trip|
|FLOAT1||50 gal/hr||15 minutes||263 lbs|
|Car2||24.9 mpg2 / 16.6 mpg in traffic3||44 miles||415.6 lbs|
Now compare the impact of nine commuters driving nine individual cars, in traffic, for 44 miles with the same nine commuters flying 44 miles in one FLOAT Cessna Caravan.
That's a total of 4.4 tons of reduced carbon emissions, per year, for each FLOAT commuter!
