    No gasoline was used but I suppose that the rear tires were completely destroyed

    Tires... a petroleum product!

    Seriously, that's awesome. Can't do that in my Roadster. (Well I have spun my tires, but nothing like that!)

    Well......

    How much oil is required to produce a tire?
    Approximately seven gallons. Five gallons are used as feedstock (from which the substances that combine to form synthetic rubber are derived), while two gallons supply the energy necessary for the manufacturing process.
