as the one they used for the test (440hp V8)
He is getting 17-18 mpg in regular (mostly highway) driving, I do not how TopGear people got 19 mpg when "racing". Even with British gallons and driving in Prius' slipstream that seems to be too optimistic. As usual for such testing they are very quiet about the technique used to measure the fuel used and reproducibility of the result. Knowing how biased they are against hybrids I would not believe that particular claim, although I usually like TopGear.
BTW, EPA rates M3 at 14/20 mpg.
