Pales average speed is fairly low, as Robert mentioned. He also drives a very specific route, that is long enough to somewhat mitigate the cold start enrichment. He also lives in a fairly warm area of the country, and I believe he uses a block heater.

His gas log covers many refills over years.

Also he uses a scan gauge.

He has been coached by one of the best hypermilers on the planet.

He drives in an area with hills that allow extended engine off gliding, with infinite MPG for those glides.

All of his techniques are capable of being duplicated, while others are specific to his location, climate, and terrain.
