I am looking at the calculation for CO2 produced by motorbikes. The formula states that motorbikes produce 80g CO2 per hour.

However, data from other sources (including Honda's own fact sheet) list motorbike CO2 emissions of ~80g per km traveled.

Given the high proportion of commuters using motorbikes in HCMC, this difference in CO2 emission calculation will have a large effect on resulting output data.
