  1. Goat's Insight Story

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Figured I would start a little Insight blog thing, since this is my first one. Always been a big fan of MPG "high scoring". Use to own a few efficient vehicles: -2004 Peugeot 206 "Pug-A-Roni" (44.0 LMPG) before getting sideswiped. Not even sure how it got in the USA legally, but it had a clean...
  2. Comparing Grid chargers

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I searched the first 3 pages of search results and could not find the information I was looking for, so I hope this isn't a redundant question. I bought a beautiful blue 2001 5MT over the weekend and have been studying this site for a week solid. I learned a lot and feel that the responses I...
  3. Picking up '01 with unknown history. Dead 12V battery. IMA condition unknown

    Problems and Troubleshooting
    I'm on my way to pick up an '01 with ~200k miles with an unknown maintenance history. I bought it at a private auction, sight unseen except for pictures, and got a fantastic deal. I'm completely expecting the battery pack to be trashed, but I am hopeful that it might be ok. The car is...

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Didn't find an introductions area so I thought I'd say hello here Just got a 2001 MT insight. Very satisfied so far, for a car that is 11 years old. Drove it for a week so far and got 53 MPG and working on getting better this week. The car is pretty solid but has some of the normal wear...
  8. New Insight Owner... Am I hearing you all Correctly? Only at 58mpg

    MPG Issues
    I've spent a lot of times pouring over all of these threads on driving techniques to learn as much as I can before posting any kind of ignorant or exhausted questions. Now that I've done my homework I'm hoping for feedback as to why I am stuck at 58mpg. I think I know the factors but would...
