Yes - that's the same guy. And he's the one who drove a new Audi V8
Diesel 800 miles on one tank of fuel, getting right at 40 mpg, to
prove that the big powerful car is also efficient.

Yeah, diesel IS cool!

Also - it is not correct (or, actually, is nothing special) to say the guy
urinated in the back of the car.  Urination is the process by which the
kidneys secrete urine to the bladder, and this is a constant process.
Micturation is the actual operation of voiding the bladder.  The regular

simply stercoraceous.

Did you wee wee in the back seat of your diesel? I think that might
