Default MPG Records for Gen.II Insight

Hey everyone, I apologize if this has already been a thread on here before. I did a search and couldn't come up with anything on the Gen.II Insight.

Owning both a Prius and Insight, on PriusChat, there's a thread with all the current mpg record holders for stock Prius' that displays model (Prius c, Prius v, or regular Prius), miles driven with that mpg average, and average speed. So far, #1 is a Prius c that drove 501.1 miles @ 99.9mpg / avg. speed 19mph. #2 is a regular Gen.III Prius that drove 1000.8 miles @ 91.8mpg / avg. speed 22mph.

There are some impressive numbers on there! Being an Insight II owner, I know the Insight is capable of some pretty impressive numbers, so lets start a thread of your personal achievements in your STOCK Insight II.

To start off, this is my personal best MPG. over 432 miles, on my trip from West Virginia to Madison, WI for HybridFest in July, my Insight returned 61.0 MPG. When I finally got to Madison, it fell to 60.9 because I was getting antsy.

My average speed was 60mph, and I had the windows cracked by maybe 1 inch, ECON mode on, and A/C off.

Ahh, yes. Being only on the mobile version, it's harder for me to see. Sorry about that. Hopefully it can be moved to the right place.

....or my thread can be deleted now. I see where people already started threads about the most mileage. I don't know why it didn't come up when I did a search... Sorry folks!

We had a 10 mile contest and a few guys were honest, then a few coasted down the Blue ridge mountains. I got like 79 mpg, others who cheated shows 150.

I was king early on, but a lot of mods I did were for performance and drivability vs mpg.

My favorites was to have my mpg match my speed and distance covered.

131 miles into my most recent fill up, (last night at BP with 93 premium.) not bad! This is normal driving too. Lots of steady cruising with 30% being city stop & go.

[QUOTE=That_Insight_Hybrid;649666]drove 501.1 miles @ 99.9mpg / avg. speed 19mph. #2 is a regular Gen.III Prius that drove 1000.8 miles @ 91.8mpg / avg. speed 22mph.

"99.9 mpg/avg. for 501.1 miles" Is that really possible?

With careful driving the prius can beat 100 mpg in its stock configuration. Its similar to the gen1 insight that can surpass 100 mpg if carefully driven.

I drove a prius 3 like a rental car and got 50 mpg, with the grill partly blocked and sidewall psi in the tires I got 65 mpg driving it like a rental car. Wait, it was a rental car.

That_Insight_Hybrid, that isnt bad in this weather. Yesterday or should I say 2 days ago on my normal 54 mpg commute I got 36 in a freezing rain like. Minus the rain, but same cold windy weather I got 42.

Im also using the hvac set to auto and 85 degrees. It helps to keep the windows defrosted.
