Question What are the best ways to increase MPG?

I've been driving my new Insight for about 6 weeks and have not been able to get over 43 mpg. I've read the posts about quick (in blue) acceleration and slow braking. I've had it on one trip and got it to 49.1 on the trip, but the whole tank of gas was only 43.15.

I do no highway driving.

but what else can I do to get my mpg up?

You said "new": is this an Insight-II? This is the Insight-I forum. If it's an Insight-I, is it CVT or MT?
