* The Miner calculator estimates are intended for illustration
purposes only. Component statistical data is pulled from published data. Rail
emission estimates assume 392.4 ton-miles per gallon of fuel based on an industry
average (436 miles per gallon) adjusted downward by 10 percent to account
for geographic factors. Individual industry suppliers may also have similar
calculators on their web sites that reflect their particular conditions
and which may produce results differing from Miner’s calculator.
