Jet fuel consumption rate of the EA-18G Growler (gal / hr)1304Department of Defense: Selected Acquisition Report, page 35
5
CO2 emissions from combustion of jet fuel (kg / gal)9.57
US Energy Information Adminstration Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program Fuel Emission Coefficients, Table 2
This is the emissions factor for jet fuel (Jet A, JP-8). Growlers burn JP-5 which, like Jet A and JP-8 is a kerosene-based jet fuel. JP-5 has been accepted as alternative to JP-8 in the frame of the Single Fuel Policy so its emissions are expected to be similar.
