    So far over 1300 miles and still have a half tank of gas from the dealer fill up. And out of the 8 gallon tank that was driving it back to Wilmington from Raleigh. Haven't used any gas since we got back. It gets 42 advertise MPG. We are actually getting 122 MPGe. So we are loving the car so far. If you can go for it, it is a great update to the Insight. A 21st century car like the Insight begin the century... Ended up getting the 2017 Volt.

    I don't know there is a better forum than InsightCentral, these guys are great ! I joined a Volt forum on the left side from a link off InsightCentral and it was so full of other junk I haven't been back. But I did find GM-Volt forum and it is monitored pretty well and so far has some good participation and sharing. I needed four seats, or I would have kept my Insight. Did a lot of research and was leaning towards the 2016 Prius, or 2016 Volt. We had a 2012 Prius and it was almost as good on gas in our area of driving as the Insight. But what sold me on the Volt, they fixed all the things I didn't like about the original Volt. It went from 38 ev miles to 53 which was enough to go into town do my running and back on just the charge. As an added bonus, it is actually charging up to over 61. They changed it from requiring premium gas to regular in the 2016. But, that looks like will only be required when we take a trip.

    I sold my Insight to another forum insighter. Now have a Chevy 2017 Volt. While I loved my Insight, have to say the Volt is awesome

    I have seen several other Insights in the Wilmington area, but have not met any of them. I am actually located in Hampstead now. Lived in Wilmington most of my life, but the growth pushed me a little further out. Not looking forward to changing my battery again, but it was not that difficult the first time. Bumblebee has been excellent ! Send me a post if you are heading this way. Maybe we can touch base.
