Default Nice mod of a 1st Gen

Hybrid project... 2000 Honda Insight - ClubRoadster.net "Well, this may seem like a strange project but I got this little Honda Insight about 2 years ago for my commute and I love this little beast. No one else has a hybrid project going on, so hopefully this will encourage others to try it out."

BCH - How much did the covering under the engine help? I know you said the wheels messed up your gas mileage, but you never stated how much the aluminum under the engine helped.

BTW. Loving it.

Thanks, you can read about it here...

Work in Progress: DIY under panel..

It seemed to help slightly with a mileage bump but it seemd to help more with stability on the freeway at freeway speeds and all the huge vehicles out there speeding past!
