Hi alplondon2005:

Thanks for the interesting question!

OK - here's some good ones:

43,000-43,500 liters

1. Fuel capacity of a BOEING 757 SERIE 200 (43,300)
Note: See last plane of page.

2. Hauling capacity of a FTP CF85 tractor unit (43,000)
Quote: "DAF claims that its FTP CF85 model is the only three-axle
tractor unit on the UK market that can legally run at 44 tonnes GCW
with the new Heil tanker fully loaded with petrol to its 43,000 litre

3. Amount of water required to produce one kg of beef (43,000)
Quote: "And to put that into another perspective, 1 kilogram of grain
requires 1,000 litres of water, and to produce a kilogram of beef,
43,000 litres of water."

17,400 golf balls hit 

1. Number of golf shots hit in a par-average, 72 hole, 4 round, 60
player tournament (17,280)
Calculation: 72 (average round) * 4*60 
            = 72 * 240
            = 17,280

2. Number of practice balls Ben Hogan would play in a 5 weeks (17,500)           
Quote: "The great Ben Hogan was known for hitting 500 golf balls a day
in practice but he only had 25 balls in his practice bag."
Calculation: 7 * 5 * 500 = 17,500

3. Number of shots that go in the water at #17 at Sawgrass every 50 days (17,123)
Quote: "Amateurs play the hole with a variety of clubs, and touring
pros usually play it with anything from an 8-iron to a wedge. But
there is no room for error. Golfers drop 125,000 balls a year into the
pond trying to hit the green."
Calculation: (125,000/52)* 50 = 17,132

Search Strategy (on Google):
* 43300 litres 
* 43000 litres 
* 43500 litres 
* "golf balls a year"
* golf "shots a year"
* "golf balls used"

I hope this helps!
