Yeah, the show was LAME. Like who on Earth expects to double your mileage by hypermiling? The one guy got 70% better mileage and was all like "Dang....I didn't double it" Huh? He got 56 mpg! 168 miles on 3 gallons in a 2010ish Ford Focus. What a bummer. They had a few stupid ideas they gave credit to like the dimple wrap vinyl sheets to improve mileage. They also talked about speeding up veeeeerry slowly which is a bit contrarian to what we know.
