In the Shadow of Two Gunmen: Part II - S2-E2

Factual error: Sam says the "state-of-the-art" oil tanker he recommends can carry 2.2 million gallons of oil and weighs 308,000 tons. The Exxon Valdez could carry over 60 million gallons (1.48 million barrels) and weighed only 211,500 tons. The writers mistakenly swapped 'gallons' for 'barrels' so that this enormous tanker carries very little oil. It would actually carry 2.2 million "barrels", which equals 92 million gallons.

Other mistake: When Toby tells Sam to "Go back to the office", the subtitles add "Let's", suggesting both are going, but only Sam leaves.
