If you've had it 4 days and only done 33 miles, that's less than 9 miles per day.
You won't get great fuel economy mainly doing short journeys. The fuel saving hybrid functions don't really work fully until the car is warmed up. It will take longer of you're running the heater / air-con / demisters too.

Thats excellent fuel economy for a 9 mile trip of stop n go traffic. My all time high is 24. I am sure thats double what the vehicle it replaced. I had a scion xb and I got a whopping 19 mpg in stop n go traffic. It was rated at 27.

I have a 2013 that is averaging 35-ish in stop and go city driving this Ohio winter (overall average of 48.8 in the first 325 miles). In the first mile or two each morning, though, my mileage takes a beating. And thereafter, I have to drive like a 90 year old to make up.
If you drive the insight just like you'd drive any other car, in the city in the winter, 30 is quite decent. If you watch the readout and drive for economy, the sky is the limit.
