The third is the fuel consumption rate, which is given by the ratio of the above two metrics (gallons per mile).
It is worth noting that our method outperforms the simulated annealing method (as well as all other benchmark methods) in terms of the fuel-consumption rate (gallons per mile).
"Our application rate is 180 gallons per mile of roadway," said Tim McCoy, District Three maintenance superintendent, "so being able to increase our payload from 2,600 to 3,400 gallons means we can cover about 30 percent more roadway per trip--and that's important not only in giving us faster reaction time, but in reducing overall application cost and wear and tear on equipment.
First, the jet-turbined-powered M1 tanks that made up the bulk of the left hook elements consume seven gallons of fuel per mile - not seven miles to the gallon, but seven gallons per mile - far more than any other tank in the world.
The average Boeing 747 burns (http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/modern/question192.htm) approximately  36,000 gallons of fuel over a ten hour flight or roughly five gallons per mile.  Aircrafts comprised nine percent of the United States' transportation sector's carbon emissions and three percent of country's total carbon emissions for 2013, according to the (http://www.c2es.org/federal/executive/epa/reducing-aircraft-carbon-emissions) Center For Climate and Energy Solutions .
No special handling is required, and little of the substance is needed for optimum results: five gallons per 3,500-gallon water truck totaling 15 gallons per mile of road.
