Electricity doesn't weigh anything at all!

It's the container for it that's kinda heavy...

I've calculated my car as roughly 130MPGe.... but my "gas tank" is about a cup!

Gasoline has a CRAZY amount of energy in it. THAT'S WHY WE LOVE IT! It really is hard to get away from gasoline when it is SOOO CHEAP and SOOO POWERFUL.

Great, now I am jones'n for a big gulp of gasoline. May as well get the gas bong out right now! Woot!

yeah, you're right. That's crazy. We're just shooting ourselves in the head with this stuff.
