I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

The figures I have been using for calculations are as follows:

Gas: 0.19 kg of CO2 per KWh
Electricity: 0.43 kg of CO2 per KWh
(KWh readings are given on electricity and gas bills).

Oil (for central heating): 2.68 kg of CO2 per litre
Coal: 2.419 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of fuel

These figures were published by the UK government (DEFRA, 2001).
