Quite right - if they'd been in "Top Gear" mode, they would have seen single digit MPG, at least right up until the impact with the caravan (or something).
If it weren't for the internet I'd have never seen or heard of Top Gear; best car show ever produced.

Now I think I've seen all 14 seasons and the past 3 episodes!
