Given his engine is less than half the size of mine and he's struggling around 10 MPG less than me? Doubtful. Technique is a major portion of my gains, I used to get 64 MPG consistently before I began hypermiling. Now I'm on an upward trend that's at 81.5, and still rising.

Although he probably won't be able to use some of my techniques, as I do a fair amount of Killed Engine Braking (I hereby lay claim to the acronym KEB), which can't save gas when applied to a carb'd engine.
