Random thought reguarding ICE off/MPG figures

The second you turn off the ice, your not using ANY fuel,
so how can the miles you rack up dead coasting be counted as
"miles per gallon" if your engine isn't burning any fuel/gallons to run?

So all these 100mpg cars, dont really count theoretically because
their not burning the fuel, your just racking up the miles on the odo..

So if I were to keep the ignition on, ice off and just spun
my tires by hand for miles and miles, isn't that pretty much
the same thing reguardless of the vehicle being in motion?

Just a thought..
