I echo that sentiment -- although in that episode he considered his attempt at hypermiling, as exhaustive and IIRC, similar to concentration during a race.
But yeah, he's not much for fuel efficiency. I remember he cracked a joke that if we all shaved off our mustaches/beards (if applicable), we'd save 100's of Liters of fuel in weight savings per year.
BTW, if we can't find any UK members, would the BBC fly out a North American representative of hypermiling? I can't think of anyone right off hand. I mean, if nobody steps up, I suppose I could squeeze it in my schedule.
I drove a car in Scotland for a week... Just think it over
