Based on a publication by Lewis Poulin

Answer the following questions to evaluate your air consumption. This 11 question form will require less than 5 minutes to complete.

The form calculates consumption for a group, group that can count a sole person if desired.

An advanced version of this form is available for offline usage: download the OpenDocument format form or the Excel format form

2. Does the group use one or many efficient cars (5 litres or less per 100 kilometers)?

If so, how many hours by week does the group use this type of vehicle...

Example: 3 vehicles traveling 2 hours per day, 5 days a week gives 3×2×5=30 hours.
3. Does the group use one or many compact cars (more than 5 litres per 100 kilometers)?
