I can't remember myself ... and on a separate yet similar note, while I first liked the idea of the playing the flower building game, it now seems pretty useless ... why did Honda design it thusly? you get your whole flower in the first couple thousand miles of the car's life and from that point forward (maybe a couple hundred thousand miles worth) it has zero value

Is there anybody that has actually managed to own an I2 for any significant length of time and not have a plant in full bloom?

To actually get the flower to drop some petals on public roads would be a significant achievement.

Maybe a track day might do the job.

I have had the Insight since April and have yet to get one plant to full bloom. I have it at two pedals now, but can't get it to get the dot on top.

My mpg is 43.5mpg when I fill up. As for mileage around 24,000 miles. I do about half highway and half city.

I reset it a while back. I'll have to try it again and see what happens.
