In our latest update on Cars.com’s carbon offset program, the winner for most emissions goes to the Infiniti EX35, which in burning nearly 30 gallons of gas chugged out almost 583 pounds of CO2 emissions. That’s probably because our editors logged a lot of miles in it. Good thing we’ve got all that joyriding testing covered.
