  1. Identify Bumblebee Battery vs OEM

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Hello! I'm in the market for a Gen1 Insight. The one I've got my eye on, sold by a private seller, is advertised as having a modern Bubmlebee battery installed, with receipt. I ran an Autocheck, and though it came back clean, the battery replacement was not listed under the detailed vehicle...
  2. Need a Gen 1 Insight?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Hi, saw these posted in Seattle and thought I would post here as they seem like some good examples if you're looking to purchase a used Gen 1. I own a used 2001 CVT Gen 1 for two months now which LOVE! Today I averaged 70mpg over 170 miles! Learned so much reading threads here and looking to...

  7. Fuel economy mods - by the numbers

    MPG Issues
    We have owned our 03 Insight for 5 years. The car has been my wife's daily commuter until the last year and a half when we decided that she needed an SUV. So we found a Ford Escape Hyrbrid as a compromise vehicle so that she could get the 4wd and space she wanted and still get respectable fuel...
