Japanese eco-drivers see larger improvements

Must have better teachers:

[T]he Japan Automobile Federation holds [seminars] across the country to teach energy-saving driving skills.


Instructors ride with participants in a training session to teach eco-driving skills. "An average 20 to 30 percent improvement in fuel efficiency is realized through (changes to) driving practices," said an instructor from JAF's Tokyo branch.

Beats the heck out of the average ~14% improvement of my group.
Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
