He doesn't mean learn to drive. He means everyone drives differently and that plays a huge role.
For example, same car, 2008 Focus, a 16 year old will probably get less MPG's than a 40 year old. Driving the manual, you may get on it more often without noticing than when you drive the auto. I know I drive differently in autos than when driving stick.
