Finally, a practical use for SUVs

Touareg V10 TDI tows a 747. Note bene, they added nearly 8 tons of ballast for traction.

Also, just for fun, I looked up the mileage of a jet plane (~3.5 liters per 100 passenger kilometers according to the redoubtable internet). If you and three friends tool around in a car getting 20 mpg, then you are swigging about 3 liters per 100 passenger kilometers. I suspect this gets worse if you try to drive across the Pacific.
