The big trucks are actually not bad in gas mileage.
Some of the worst are about 17-20 miles per gallon. Usually you will get anywhere between 22-25. The problem with most is that they have undersized fuel tanks which makes it seem like they are gas guzzlers.
My boss just got the new '05 Vette.
With the car on fire he still gets 17-20 miles per gallon!
It may not be the 30 that those toy cars get, but hey, were american!

That is supercharged and turbocharged, hence the belt on the large polished aluminum chunk next to the turbochargers and K&N's...

What is even more scary is that there doesn't appear to be a roll cage inside the car. Driving a car with an engine like that and no roll cage would be suicide.

That thing has to be a show car because if you look at the seats they aren't racing seats and also there aren't any harnesses. This is besides there being no roll cage. Can anyone say 2 miles to a gallon?
