    Since this is the science section, it is customary to provide a link to the study or the evidence. YouTube videos to 80's New Wave bands are hardly evidence.

    So whoopty-do. Most of that weight comes from the air that goes into an engine's intake manifold.

    Kinda makes sense when the 'C' comes from the Gasoline and combines the TWO Oxygen molecules/O2 from the air.
    As well as creating other compounds from burning.

    Combustion cannot be beat. It has provided concentrated energy, comfort, convenience, and an easier life to mankind for millennia.

    Burn more hydrocarbons, burn 'em baby, because life is better.

    Of course, not having to burn hydrocarbons can't be worse than having to do so.

    It's not worse not having to burn hydrocarbons. But a lot of inconvenience and discomfort goes with that.
