Think You Have a Gas Guzzler? NASA Probably Doesn't Agree!

NASA uses two enormous tracked vehicles called Crawler-Transporters to carry the space shuttles out to their launch pads from the hangers where they are prepared. The Crawler-Transporters use diesel fuel. Their mileage? They use 150 gallons of diesel per mile. That is per mile, not per hundred miles. Expressing that in gallons per hundred miles or GPHM we have 15,000 GPHM. Next to that outrageous consumption the puny 10 GPHM a guzzling SUV uses is a mere nothing. Of course an SUV would be crushed flat if you sat the space shuttle on top of it!
