16. I dont see the point in bashing Hummers, honestly,
I mean come on, compared to other SUV's and trucks you'd see on the road, you'll only see a Hummer once in a while. My brother has a 19 foot Bayliner boat with a 4.3 v6 (same engine used the chevy s-10's, and they average up over 20mpg in that vehicle) Turning optimum speed/fuel usage to mpg, it gets around 8mpg. But hey, its a boat, and they almost always use a shit load of fuel, but there damn dun to ride in! He can pretty well afford it, so its his to keep and use it whenever he please. My pleasure ride is my YZ450F dirtbike, it actually a bit of a gas sipper dispite being a fast, powerful ligtweight machine!
