Saving money in one place allows you to speed it elsewhere too.
I think his point is that is the difference in gas mileage between an Integra and an M3 worth the cost of owning a second car? A decent used car is in the range of $5K to $10K plus added maintenance and insurance that goes with it. You could just as well spend that money on gas for the M3 and come out ahead.
