Are you considering a switch to a more efficient car, or have you switched already? Why or why not?

I recently watch a TV show, where they tested the fuel effiecency of a Prius against a BMW M3. Well under ideal conditions the Prius will win hands down. But what was done on this particular show was , both cars were put on a track and the Prius had to go around the track as fast as it could and the BMW just had to keep up to the Prius, and fuel consumption was measure. The Prius averaged 17 mpg and the BMW 19 mpg. So if your considering a Prius for better MPG make sure foot isn't made of lead. in case you want to see the the show http://www.topgear.com/us/videos/more/thirsty-prius
