279L / 100km or 120gal / 100mi.

I was watching an episode of Combat. A tanker said his tank used 4 gallons of fuel per mile. I thought that sounded too high and looked it up. The M4 Sherman tanks weren't such fuel hogs. They just sip fuel using only 1.2 gallons per mile.

Seems crazy, but when you look at how much they weigh, it's surprising they move at all, nevermind at the speeds they do.

NASA's crawler-transporter has that beat with 296 liters per kilometer (125.7 U.S. gal/mi).
