How much gas does a commercial plane use during takeoff?

    It depends on the plane, of course. And jets don’t use gasoline, they use jet fuel, a different chemical derived (like gasoline) from oil. The link is to a forum with some information for various aircraft.

    As much as 50% of carbon emissions from planes come from the combination of the takeoff and landing.  To predict how much fuel is used during takeoff, you must know the size of the plane, how much cargo it has, and the weather conditions.  On average, a passenger jet burns about 910 lbs. of fuel, or 136 gallons, during its takeoff and climb.  It will burn a similar amount during its descent and landing.
