Yeah, and Bill Clinton "did not have sexual relations with that woman".

I don't doubt they flew the plane over the car, or had the fuelling probe hangin out, but to think there isn't any clever editing, or cgi in that video would be naive at best.

How do you suppose they filmed that fuel spraying toward the lens from within the tank? once you accept that wasn't quite real, where do you draw the line after that with reference to filming 'just' the real thing? And what would be acceptable as real, and what wouldn't.

And I'm the Genghis Khan!

Where are the two big blokes to push the nozzle onto the car (and off again) then? That thing would refuel that car in about two seconds and the danger of getting clouted round the head by the refueling hose would put any sane person off attempting anything like that.

But if it says no CGI then it must be real!

It seems it was several blokes on the back of a flat bed with the car, camera and a load of people, lighting, a snake machine and Uncle Tom Cobbley!
