Hasarad,

You and I are both on Fuelly and - in fact - I sent you an email as well as a friend request on there yesterday. We both are doing really well compared to the other 19 vehicles (2019 Insights).

Sincerely,
Michael

I'm currently driving "Serenity". A '15 Civic Hybrid which uses a drivetrain similar to the 2nd gen Insight. Will check out yours and other 3rd gen stats right now.

BTW
REALLY impressive mpg in that thumbnail !! WOW!!
We should have a tbread dealing with how-to driving tips for getting those above EPA mpg

Have the engine operate as little as possible, especially when standing still or moving slowly; while also meeting my demands for power and maneuvering.

Do you report the LED readout or do you report by taking the gallons used to top of the tank divided by miles driven or both?

If both - how accurate is the LED readout - I heard it is +/- 10% - is it really that inaccurate?

Other posts on this forum indicate LED read outs are 0.5 to 1.5 mpg lower than gas pump #gallons calaculations.

The on-board mpg indicator is fairly accurate. The issue is that, since we put so little fuel in at each fill-up, there is always a small variance depending on when the pump clicks off. After over 10,000 miles, I am within a couple tenths of a mpg difference between indicated and actual. I'd consider that to be accurate for the on-board indicator.
