The Equus consumes about 18 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The Equus emits 502 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 7,530,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 359 trees would offset these emissions. The Equus does not have start-stop technology.
