I saw it on TV a long while ago. Nice to be able to see it again. I think at the time when J. Clarkson did it, the concept of hypermiling was not as well known as now. Some of the fuel saving techniques he talked about can easily be copied by ordinary drivers though.
Thanks for posting the links!
All we need are access to more of these diesels...the only way I'm getting back into a modern automobile is if it's a turbodiesel...although with the coming stability control requirement, that's going to be a hard sell to me as well...VW better come back with their new diesels pretty quickly...
'67 Mustang - out of commission after an accident
'00 Echo - DD
'11 Kia Rio - Wife's DD
'09 Harley Nightster - 48mpg and 1/4 miles in the 12's
Thanks for the heads-up on the show being on YouTube; I passed the links along to my motorhead brother, who I'm sure will enjoy 'em as well. (He's currently monitoring a neighbor playing with MPG Caps or whatever they're called. )
