I think I saw that guy on Discovery channel some time last year, and posted about it.. ah, here's the link: http://www.maddoxjets.com/

My wife saw 'that smile' on my face, took one look over my shoulder to see what I was looking at and said "NO".

It's not Miles per gallon, It's gallons per mile.

.003 mpg on pulse engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu4GtfirKkg
Sure looks like it gets a little hot around the leg area.


.013 mpg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32PN-OvQxFM

Saw Jay Leno on his rocket powered motorcycle on TV once. Didn't look like acceleration was that great but sure looked like it HAULED ASS once it got up to speed

Had to make a new entry on the Bucket list.
Passing a parked cop on that bike doing 148 mph, and showing up in court to plead the ticket.
Judge: "You passed this officer doing 148 mph?"
Me: "Yes sir."
Judge: "On a bicycle...?"
Me: "Yes sir."
Judge: "Baliff, take this officer downstairs and administer a drug test."
