LMAO, so you are going to drive something that gets worse gas milage than the Insight, even in the cold, and produces more green house emissions, just to not lower your LTM? Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of having the insight? Or did you just get it for LTM braging rights?

I hear you. It's ten below outside right now. I don't care so much about my LMPG, but I do care about my fingers freezing on the commute to work. I don't intend to drive a car in a Minnesota winter without a decent heater. So the old Escort is back on the road until it hits 20 degrees above. In this cold, it's about 10-15 mpg lower than the Insight, but it warms up within 2 miles, not 12.Rober wrote: The temperatures in the region I live in have dropped to single digits at night and teens during the day.
