Which gas is better for lawn mowers?
Gasoline is the gas most commonly used in lawnmowers, according to a new study by the US Department of Energy.
Gasoline use was reported to be less than 10% of lawn mower use in 2010, but it’s rising fast, according the US government.
The study by researchers at the US Environmental Protection Agency, released in September, showed that in the last five years, lawnmower use has increased by over 4%.
The authors estimate that lawnmowing accounts for 2.5% of US greenhouse gas emissions.
“Lawnmowers are a significant contributor to CO2 emissions,” said lead author Christopher J. Kuczynski, a senior research scientist in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the DOE’s Office of Science.
“With the adoption of electric lawnmobiles, it’s important to look at the total impact of electric vehicles and the overall growth of electric vehicle ownership and ownership in the United States,” Kucynski said.
“We think electric vehicles could have a significant impact on the carbon footprint of vehicles in the future.”
In the study, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, researchers examined the use of electric mowers across nine states over the last four years.
They looked at both lawn mowing and other energy-intensive activities, such as washing machines and dishwashers.
The study found that electric lawn mows were responsible for up to 14% of the total amount of energy used in a year.
The study found electric mows accounted for 13.6% of electricity use in the US, with the average electric mower using 2.6 kilowatt hours per year.
The authors noted that electric mowing is “one of the most energy-efficient vehicles on the market today” and that it could help offset rising electricity costs in the long run.
