Hypermiler Heart Attack

It's the equivalent of showing the rib-fest menu to a group of vegetarians. I've created this thread to make people squirm in discomfort. You know, just for the fun of it. I suppose we can all look and say "Thank god that's not mine." If you have any grotesque gas guzzling finds, please post them to this thread.

Good thing its so big and can tow so much. I wonder how much a 100 gallon gas tanker weighs? I'm pretty sure you would need to tow one behind that thing. What does it get....2mpg city 5mpg highway?

The only stat that crossed my eyes on fuel economy for that thing was that it got 13mpg. Considering that it is diesel, I kinda believe it. I think that it comes with two 50 gallon fuel tanks. So at a total of 100 gallons, it would cost $450 to fill it, assuming the price of diesel is $4.50 per gallon (I don't buy diesel, so I don't know what today's price is).

It needs an air dam in front and aero bed cover in back.
Then ti would get 14 MPG
Seriously, They were working on that concept when I worked at the Ford dealer.
It is based off the Ford Semi Platform. Available with all the creature comforts of an Over the Road Tractor.

I'd hate to say it but some of those look like they could be daily drivers. Clearly money is not a problem for those guys. $94k plus those mods don't look cheap. Custom arm rest, paint, blah blah. So I don't think that they would mind filling up twice as often as some of us here.
