To be fair, some cars are stubborn. I owned a 2007 Subaru Outback automatic (in 2009 I believe). I drove it normally just to get used to the car and get a baseline MPG. Then I tried hypermiling techniques and it barely changed anything. 24 MPG. I could get up to 32 MPG (average of 28) in my 1996 Legacy, so I sold the Outback a month later and made a grand in the process.
