I had a teenager express fantasies about that when I was in jr high. He thought it would be so cool. At the time he got excited about the idea of launching a Mustang.
 
But think about the gas mileage that thing is gonna get.

Like I said, killer gas mileage.:bounce:
I wonder what the fuel rate / mpg is on the rocket that is carrying it?:pop:

The Falcon 9's estimated mpg was around .0075 mpg. I imagine the Falcon X Heavy is worse than that, just to get it free of our gravity.

It gets better once it goes ballistic. You have to average it out. :bounce:

Got to do something with those overpriced golf carts. Might as well launch them into space.

I suppose the further it travels the better it gets. At 17k mph it's a matter of distance. I suppose after a year it may make it up to .01 mpg. :rofl:
