I get it. She's reporting MORE fuel than the plane really uses and then puts the excess into her car.

Speaking of which, I'd wish some of the obviously WRONG MPG reports would be deleted. These reports also are dormant accounts, too.
If you could report the pages, or send me a PM with the details I can try to resolve that.

Yea there are a lot of bogus entries, doesn't take long before you come across one. Check this one out, this guy gets either 700 or 800 miles EXACTLY on nearly every tank, and gets EXACTLY the same amount of fuel in each time....Honda Insight (Space ship) (Honda Insight) | Fuelly

You see results where people have a higher average mpg figure than their best tank figure....or people with regular 40 mpg cars with some 300 mpg fills etc... They are rare, but stand out as dodgy.

Or those that add lots of fuel ups together and add them as one giant fuel up, so thier "best miles per tank" is something like 3500...

She could have been speaking in pounds of fuel. The weight is more important to a pilot than the volume.

Perhaps, but she definitely said gallons, as my ecohead kicked in to work out how far I could go with that much fuel ha! I saw a Program about the diesel engine the other day, interesting to see a freight ship can do 55,000 miles on a "full tank"

Something like a supertanker you'd think would be ideal to carry it's own solar farm...

I remember reading about some Japanese car company putting solar panels on one of their small ship transports. Seeing how the really large transports aren't likely diesel-electrics, solar power may not provide huge gains.

There is the idea of using huge kites to help pull them along when the wind is going in the right direction.
