I could have said "and cruised at highest speed and a 250,000 mile range and got about 1/2 mile per gallon"

Actually No. You'd have to figure the fuel used to get the car to it's "Domain" where it had a Cd of "0", then find out how far it drove. The WORST "Mileage" of any car... ever, I'd say. There are a few of these available for the "Taking", the GSA auction site has not listed them, as of yet.

This is a special case. Our cars could drive to our homes, the Moon Buggies could not get to their "0" Cd location without the Saturn Rocket.
