Readily doable for a dedicated hypermiler.

It is doable!
Especially in a "Stock" vehicle.

It all has to do with the "LOOSE NUT" on the steering wheel.

What is your definition of stock. Mima is not stock clutch switch is not stock its not doable unless you drive 40 mph and rarely stop. Not doable driving to real places in real situations. I even see in mpg competitions reported here that stock cars get that.

Well yeah you'd have to hypermile you couldn't do that trying to keep up with traffic.

My absolute best was 78 but my car was far from stock. However, that was with no IMA because the battery was dead. Stock with a working IMA you could do better than 78 if you hypermiled even more aggressively than I was.

But you'd have to use every trick in the book. I'm talking like key-off EoC up to stop signs and into parking spots and rolling into an elevated spot so you can kick-push the car to get it rolling again in neutral, and like parking at the parking spot absolutely the farthest away from the building (closest to the road) so that you don't waste gas in the parking lot, and carrying nothing in the car to save weight, drive w/ lights off, no HVAC at all, etc.

don't worry, you're not the only one.

best tank i've gotten between the 2 insights was 75mpg and that was a lucky shot with relatively ideal driving situations. if you read back, most people when this car was new 15+ years ago were struggling to learn how to get to 70mpg to a tank. 90mpg to a lifetime, yeah i highly doubt it hasn't been reset or has any mods. that is like handing someone a brand new insight that no one has ever driven and they immediately were getting 90+mpg from the get go... yeah, not buying it. even later on getting 110+ to offset it, we all know how easy it is to lose MPG and how hard it is to get it back.

with my 49.4mpg that was on my 300k mile clock i have zero chance of even getting over 60mpg on it before it dies. not using that as a comparison, just doubting someone could ever manage to get an average of 90+mpg over 250k miles. the silver one had 59.6LMPG, i think i managed to tick it up to 59.8LMPG while averaging about 65+mpg per tank for oh.... 10,000 miles or so. during winter, the car just hates lean burn, enough to where i can't picture anyone getting 90mpg even hypermiling a stock car unless they found a magical neverending downhill road, lol.

some things probably should be assumed in the chart and other things probably just false, but what ya gonna do.

I do believe it could be done by maybe 2-3 people. Only driving the car when it's warm out, specially when you start out for a ride. Gotta have a real good battery. Pretty flat area or very tiny hills and you couldn't use it for 3 or 4 mile trips. Car has to warm up to get lean burn. For a tank or so it's pretty easy, lifetime pretty darn hard. You'd have to only take it out in perfect conditions.
