According to an EPA study, one 3hp lawn mower emits the same air pollution as 11 cars driving at 55 mph. Each additional HP is calculated with a linear use equation.
**Each 1 HP from a lawn mower = 3.67 CARS AT 55 MPH EMISSIONS**
According to the EPA, one gas mower spews 88 lbs. of the greenhouse gas CO2, and 34 lbs. of other pollutants into the air every year. Also over 17 million gallons of gas are spilled each year refueling lawn and garden equipment – more oil than was spilled by the Exxon Valdez.
