What's your LOWEST mpg to date?

I just picked up my 2001 SE, and I'm curious as to what kinda mileage these things actually get. I've noticed that a lot of them vary between 12-20mpg. What's the absolute worst you've ever seen? On the trail, off the trail, highway?

i've seen 6mpg in my BMW 540i at a track day.

The bus from the movie Speed. When Keanu climbed under it and punctured the gas tank with a screwdriver.

Once at the top of a mountain, I turned the Jeep off, put it neutral and coasted down a 10 mile descent going 50+. When I started the it back up, I had 1/4 tank more than I started with.

I got zero MPG the time I put in a gallon of gas before I realized that I had disconnected the filler hose while removing a body lift.

When I first got my Mustang it was carburated and it was running pig-rich. You could floor it and watch the gas needle move.
