What seems like a very interesting story on a new special type of [s]stink boat[/s] fuel efficient ocean vessel able to cross the atlantic on a single load of fuel (well, duh) appears to be a bit of a crock -- the "spider thingy" concerned packs 2000 gallons of diesel, hence 2.5mpg which isn't that efficient really.
