You sure about that? A:F is by weight so that's <15lbs in the reaction.
You have a LOT of Nitrogen, which remains MOSTLY inert through that
equation so... 70% N in the atmosphere? That'd leave roughly 9 to 9.5
lbs of N on both sides. You get CO2 and H2O in a complete reaction so
a third of the O goes to water, all the H so you only get the C and 2/3 of
the O going toward CO2. Guess I could pull out the book and see what
the composition is of #2. Been too long to remember the ratios of C to H
in a methyl, ethyl, propyl, etc carbon chain.
