I didn't watch it but from what you quoted I am guessing he didn't find the button to release the trunk and therefore thought you needed your key to open it.

Yeah, coming back from Gingerman raceway, going across Indiana on the turnpike I got 30 & a hair MPG.(at 70mph on cruise) I'm always getting in excess of 28 highway.
