Too lazy to go back to the article, but I think it powers the world's largest freight ship. So...gallons per knot?

A knot is a measure of speed- one nautical mile per hour, which is 1.151 mph.

D'oh! I completely Han Solo'd* that, didn't I? I blame my headache for the mistake. A nautical mile is, of course, what I should have used.






*Blatant attempt at earning Joe's nerd-approval by referencing Solo's claim that the Millennium Falcon did the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.
