Good news, everyone. Terry got faster! But is he faster than a Burrito Tank? Let’s find out.
Jim McNulty, a burrito lover from Milwaukee, WI, converted this 1983 Mitsubishi multi-terrain hauler to a burrito tank by removing the hauling bed and adding a gas grill and ice chest. The conversion was originally planned to take place over a long Memorial Day weekend in 2003, but was delayed due to beer.
The partially completed burrito tank sat in Mr. McNulty’s backyard until June of 2011 and had its public debut a few months later at the Wisconsin State Fair. This was the tank’s one and only appearance at the fair as Mr. McNulty was asked not to return by fair officials after multiple cases of tetanus, botulism, and e. coli poisoning were linked to the tank.
The burrito tank’s 47hp diesel engine is tuned for hauling, but on a flat surface the vehicle can reach speeds of up to 9 mph. Below is a chart comparing the top speed of the burrito tank with my friend, Terry.
As one can clearly see, the burrito tank is faster than Terry by at least 1 mph.
