Use more assist if you want, but you'll also have to burn more gas at the same time (in general). And don't forget that all rechargeable batteries have a finite life. The more their cycled, especially through their full range E :arrow: F the shorter they'll last. But remember that Honda does add thermal and limits of charge usage to maximize their service lifeBlue-AZ said:<snip>
I wondering if I'm using enough assist? I do drive it easy and usually try to coast to a stop light and it shows about 4-5 bars on the re-charge with out using the brakes. If it just touch the brakes mine show full charging.
Just another persons experience. I'm certainly no where near an expert at this yet. But I'm having a great driving my Insight!
Sounds like your driving the Insight to its full design potential. Owner's who's driving style best matches the design concepts of the car they drive are generally the happiest in the long run...
