Junkyard Wars does a Hypermiling Episode!

I found some old Junkyard Wars episodes, and I noticed that one of the episodes is about hypermiling. The teams build little econo-mobiles out of wheelchairs and engines from a hedge trimmer and a motor scooter. It's pretty well done.

It's not spam, I promise!

When they actually do the contest, you'll find the P&G doesn't go quite as planned...

Try using VLC Media Player. Windows Media Player sometimes sucks at playing video properly.

They don't make any new episodes anymore, do they? I always liked Junkyard Wars, it was a great show.

That was a great episode. I must've watched every show when it was on. I was always amazed at the stuff that actually ran when they were done.
