I have plenty of experience driving military vehicles, but even though I always tried to drive cars and even school buses efficiently, all that I know about military fuel efficiency is that my fuel truck was rated at having a 300-mile range on a 150-gallon tank.

Of course, being a fuel truck, you stop, fill up the entire convoy, and continue driving.

However, having driven military vehicles, I never want anything even slightly resembling one. The HMMWV is big on the outside, but small on the inside, and I need earplugs when I struggle to maintain 55 MPH on the freeway.

I am not fond of zipper windows, either. I wonder if any Soldier has ever successfully had that fixed through a work order. I think that you just "secure" another door.
