Is that 65 million gallon thing accurate? If you assume 8 hours each day, that would make them going through 1128 gallons of the stuff every SECOND for 8 hours straight, 2 days in a row. If they MEANT to say 65 thousand, that would be a much more reasonable number to believe. Remember: they ARE 8, they could've miscalculated that --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 02:13, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hm. One of the sources says 65 million, the other simply 65 -- don't know which one to believe, but they obviously can't both be correct. The latter figure seems much more believable. Perhaps you could try searching on Google for more sources, and see what they say? Tempo di Valse ♪ 02:17, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not to mention that if it was indeed millions, they'd be getting less than 4 cents per 100 gallons, while if it was thousands it's a much more believable (after expenses) 37 cents per gallon --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 02:18, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree, the source that cited millions is most likely incorrect -- 65m gallons is really unbelievable. Thanks for changing the article. Tempo di Valse ♪ 02:24, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
