Honda put a hotter thermostat in the first gen Insight than any other car of their lineup at the time, which tells me there is SOME efficiency to be gained. Although the claimed in this thread doesn't seem realistic to me. Seat of the pants driving my Insight and watching the temps tells me it's probably <5%.
