  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.
