Since the weather has been warming up, I decided to pair up my 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid III vs. my mom's 2010 Insight II on the same set of roads.
I did both today when the temperature was 85 degrees here in Cleveland, OH.
In a 8 mile loop on a 3/4 full battery in mom's insight, I managed to get 59.6 MPG. This loop included lots of stop and go traffic and slight downhill inclines.
The same 8 mile loop in my Civic got an amazing number: 72.4 MPG!!!
My Civic's battery was on about the same amount of full battery.
The Civic only has 750 miles while the Insight has 46K miles on it. I can't imagine the Civic's mileage when it hits about 5-6K miles.
The Civic slipped into EV mode A LOT in this loop, something the Insight doesn't have.
I wish I would figure how to add pictures on this site but I don't log on as often as I like..
Thought id like to add that. both these cars just sip fuel!
