Good luck on the sale. How come no pics of the engine bay on E-bay?
Beautiful looking car.
Worth every penny I'm sure.

"The car can average 31mpg easily and monitored with the Scanguage 2 which is directly linked to the ECU via OBD2 in real time."

"FCD works fine but is not needed as the car is at 65 LIfe-time MPG and *climbing due to the Kswap"

These two statements (from your add) appear to be incongruous. Is that *, merely, an errant spelling of the word "dropping", or is there something I'm missing? 'Cause if I could get mileage like that, from a K-swap, you can bet your as.......terisk...

If the FCD is not hooked up properly, all driving will be recorded as either 150 MPG or ∞ MPG, which will easily make the LMPG appear to increase when it isn't. Take a look at the video Ecky posted of his K-swap for example.

"FCD works fine" -- is this just the instantaneous mpg meter, or the entire FCD system?

very big thanks, Willie!
there a few engine bay pictures in there, but i wasnt sure which pic to put for the main, maybe i should go with an engine bay pic? the main pic is a little boring, tho i have noticed every other insight listed is facing left while mine is the only one facing right, maybe thats enough to set it apart?

i may change up the picture order tonight, ive been trying to advertize it as much as i can everywhere else as it only has about 8days left on the auction, im astounded but it even hit HondaProJason's page!!! he really enjoyed reading the description, he told me. i did ask him to drive it, but he wont be in ohio until later this summer and i am in the process of moving soooo everything is kinda up in the air.
only sure thing right now is how reliable and solid this car has been for me.

Default simple answer is Insight gauge cluster is not made to communicate with 4cylinder ECUs

"the FCD works fine just means the Button is not broken like on other older insights. its still able to change the caculations but wont work for reading the actual instantaneous MPG"

mpg numbers guy is right, the Cluster in these cars are not like analog guages. they do grab data from the ecu and sensors like other cars but the gauges themselves are like a computer between.
the gauges get signals and calculates them to show on the LCD display like the s2000, there needs to be a lot of go between wiring to change the MPG gauge on the dash, since it is not grabbing the info anymore, the FCD pretty much maxes out because it does not have info from injectors etc.

so the little Scangauge2 on the lower left of the wheel reads out Water Temperature, Accurate RPM, Average MPG, and calculated MPG as taken directly from the ECU through OBD2
in truth the Scangauge2 can read anything the ECU displays via OBD2 in real time upto 4 items at once. the ones i listed are my preferred for everyday

yes, the FCD button broke on my other k24 ksight and i simply removed it, it was funny because i kept reading about it, and then it finally happened to me
so since i know it's an annoying issue that happens, i made a point to note that the "Button" is still good. I wish I could change that simple sentence to
"FCD Button Works fine but is not needed etc....."
but ebay wont let me revise the description, but I am happy ppl are reading all of it, which is great because it's a great car to drive and write about.

Such a nice car.
Hope you get some good bids.

What kind of 0-60 time would you estimate.
Or 1/4 mile? Any idea?

hey thanks buddy, i did get some good bids recently
if i ever spent the time learning how to use the performance features of the scangauge2, it could calculate 0-60 time and quarter mile times for me.

id estimate 0-60 is easily around 4seconds
my best quarter mile time was 14.5ish before the shift light and launch control, and it was only the second time ive ever done drag racing at a track.

id estimate this car is easily 13second quarter mile times, especially with some better tires! my friend k-insight on instagram ran a 11's with a stock typeS swap and drag slicks. the engine in this car pretty much makes TypeS power thanks to the aggressive cams, tune, and intake/exhaust combo!
