Hi there. I think someone asked this a while ago, can't remember what the answer was, but chances are it will be a trucker, have a nosy under "heavy vehicles" I'm sure there are some big rigs doing mega miles there

The ones with a long string of consistent refueling reports, I suppose.

Speaking of which, I'd wish some of the obviously WRONG MPG reports would be deleted. These reports also are dormant accounts, too.

I could start listing my work truck. It's rather boring though. It's computer says it gets four (something) mpg. These large trucks generally get that.

In case you missed it, a 747 with 450 passengers and cargo flies 1 nautical mile on 5 gallons of fuel. Quite efficient on the per passenger mile when you do the math.

But also burns through 4000 gallons just to take off, the same amount your average 40 MPG car would use in about 15 years

4,000? Someone else here said 10,000 gallons to take off.

That 6,000 delta got me wondering.

When I did the math, this site claims its around 870 gallons to take off:

How much fuel does a Boeing 747 use during take off?

Paul, go back and tell her to research her answers on the internet before spreading false information. Then don't forget to duck.
