Thanks Sean. I see that picture in my post above which was why I didn't understand his post.

Maybe it is visible on a desktop but I don't see it on my iPhone.

Ahh, that has to be it.

I also weighed my Insight with 2 bars of fuel and a backpack in the back at 1835 lbs. I figured there was a gallon of gas in there and figured 6 pounds plus the backpack at 19 lbs to be 1810 lbs. ..but based on what you are saying, I'm thinking possibly 1800 lbs flat or maybe a little short of that? For what it's worth I filled 10 gallons in after the second click(without loading the canister) driving around enough to bring me down to zero bars on that same tank.

I suppose it was loading the canister. All I know is it took FOREVER to get the thing full. When I put my measured gallon in to get to the station, it went up to 1 bar. I think I saw somewhere that the rated curb weight of an MT Insight with A/C was 1850 lbs.

Ok, I'm 6 weeks into ownership of my 2001 Insight and here is my first really impressive readout after a trip to Southampton (UK is a small country, that's about as far as I could go without encountering an ocean!) Next morning I snapped this.

Default My best tank thus far....

Bone-stock 2000 MT.

Not quite as impressive as some here, but I'm still proud of myself. Had two recals on this tank, so I could've done better. Going to have to invest in a grid charger as soon as time and funds allow.

If you top off the tank (which I no longer do) you can squeeze nearly 14(?) gallons into the car.

That said, my car at least doesn't seem to trigger the auto-stop feature on a consistent level of fill. I've been reverse calculating fuel used and stop the pump at the calculated usage which seems to consistently be before the auto-stop trigger for the pump. YMMV.

Even more insane was when I had 3 bars...at the 1500 mile mark.
