Adding in the g/mile is not sweat. EPA average for all gasoline vehicles is 17.something mpg, so I just used 20mpg, but it's fairly easy to accurately approximate the emissions associated w/ NOx production at refineries in g/mile for vehicles. Course like someone mentioned their externalized impact depends on location, so YMMV.
