Most surreal moment of Efficiency

whats the most surreal moment of efficiency you've come across??

May driving or may be in some other avenue of life like at the store.

e.g. Last year I was on the German Autobahn - late for a flight cruising in a Merc CLS 320CDI at a speedo indicated 247km/h (on cruise control!!!?!!!) In a rare second of bravery/stupidity I took my eyes off the road to flick through the trip computer screens. now taking into account this was 4000+ lbs car witha a BIG turbo'd V6 diesel cruising at around 150mph it was still returning 30mpg(uk) - 24ish MPG(us)

e.g.2. just been to Asda, our arm of wallmart and there was an offer on milk 4pints for 1.50 or on promotion was 8pints for 3 - what the hells the point in that!
