You're going to make me resort to math this morning....

The 1995 Honda Accord, V6 and automatic transmission, is estimated to produce 9.8 tons (8900 kg) of CO2 per year. CO2 has a molecular weight of about 44, of which 32 is from the oxygen. Gasoline is a blend of hydrocarbons that can be modeled as a fictitious hydrocarbon C8H17. For every atom of carbon burned into CO2 approximately two atoms of hydrogen are burned into H2O, so the amount of oxygen used by hydrogen is right at half that used by carbon (1 CO2 + 1 H2O is one carbon, two hydrogen, and three oxygen atoms). About 6500 kg of the CO2 output is oxygen. That means another nearly 3300 kg of the water vapor is also oxygen.

9700 kg of O2 is consumed by the "typical" 6 cylinder 1995 Honda Accord. The 4 cylinder is about 20% less.
