I thought the video was silly, for the most part, like two high school boys talking ****. A better comparison between the two cars can be found in Motor Trend:

Back to the video -- I have a DSG but if I set my cruise control on 50 mph I get some pretty spectacular mpg, far better than a measly 40. I don't think that guy knew how to drive a diesel.

WSKTDI, yesterday I was behind one of the original Insights. He was really hauling ass down the street and turned on to the entrance ramp of the freeway and I followed him. I was surprised how fast that car was, unless he had done some kind of modification to it. I didn't try to keep up with him in heavy traffic. He was a rather crazy driver and soon disappeared down the outside lane doing at least 80.
