Cessna 182 flies 848 miles on only 56 gallons of fuel
Ross McCurdy and Thierry Staint Loup set a world record aviation fuel efficiency with an 848-mile triangular flight in a Cessna 182 using only 56 gallons of fuel, which works out to 15.1 nautical miles per gallon. The fuel used was a 50-50 mix of jet aviation fuel and biofuel.

Gee,two people and a whopping 15 mpg.  Not so impressive to some Q-bird and EZ flyers.  Gotta love at least some aspects of these little birds.  (We’d be passing that 182, too)
