The Avalon consumes about 13 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 Avalon emits 354 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 5,310,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 253 trees would offset these emissions. The Avalon does not have start-stop technology.
