Smile Insight Record?

Finally made it to an LMPG of 100.2mpg Imp over 60,000 miles.

Meter flipped over today after several weeks on 99.9mpg. A long steady 200 mile run at 125mpg helped push it over the magic 100mpg barrier.

Most Insight MK'1s can achieve > 100mpg but having the large phev capacity and mima means you can keep it up there all day!!!

The car has now done 120,000 miles but i reset lmpg when I bought it at about 60,000 miles.

Must have nearly 20,000 miles as phev now as well.

So that (100 MPG Imp) is 83.3 MPG US.

Amazing stuff. If I get mine up around 70 US I'll be good.

Congratulations, 83.3mpgUS is very impressive, and I'm sure you've been well above that mark over the last 20000mi.

How much electricity has it used, and how many KWh does it take to displace a gallon of gas, in practice?

Why reset it now? You know you'll be doing more amazing mods that will further increase the fuel economy. Instead, you could devote one of the two trip mileage registers to your PHEV mileage until you make the next mod. I believe that these trip mileage registers will record up to 10,000 miles before resetting (hmm, I wonder whether they would reset at 10,000 km for those whose gauges are set to the metric system).

Nice work!!

Coincidentally, my Insight's LMPG is almost identical: 83.35 mpg US over 50,831 miles. All on gas: no PHEV. But it does have MIMA, which helps a lot. Incidentally, this number is gallons pumped versus miles on the odometer, but it agrees closely with the dash LMPG display.

Best trip was 150 miles in the summer at 109.5 mpg US = 131.5 mpg IMP; best tank was 10+ gallons at 102.7 mpg US.

I don't think either of us is setting a record. For example,
hightower (Randall) in OK has 95.42 mpg US over 84,000 miles (114.59 mpg IMP)
Right Lane Cruiser (Sean) in MN has 90.22 mpg US over 27,484 miles
and there are several others in that range as well.

So we have work to do, but it's nice to see what is possible.

I'm going to reset it then to see how it fares from now on with LMPG and phev batteries a year old. I should have reset it when i did the conversion in hindsight!

Randall will be hard/impossible to beat even with the phev and mima epecially on my short daily commute (13 miles each way from cold).
