35 mpg fuel conservation numbers from the Union of Concerned Scientists
On the biofuel side of things, producing 35 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2017 would cut projected oil demand by 1.5 million barrels per day in 2017. If these fuels are primarily ethanol (corn-based and cellulosic), it would reduce global warming pollution by 160 million metric tons in 2017, the equivalent of removing almost 24 million of today's cars and trucks from the road.
