This study to calculate and composition of fuels from polyethylene waste production per litre. Production method with pyrolysis at 450-621°C without catalyst, and quantitative method with GC-MS. The results product of 5 kg pyrolysis HDPE are 3.25 litres of naphtha; 0.85 litre of gasoline; 0.325 litre of diesel fuel; and 18.06 grams of residues. Then The product of 5 kg pyrolysis LDPE are 0.5 litres of naphtha; 2.9 litre of gasoline; 0.1 litre of diesel fuel; and 19 grams of residues. The

Then The product of 5 kg pyrolysis LDPE are 2.9 litre of gasoline, 0.1 litre of diesel fuel, and 19 grams of residues. Composition of fuels from polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE) pyrolysis are naphtha, gasoline, and residues.
