Hi everyone
I tried to search on the forum as well as read the user manual but couldn't find this specific piece of info that I'm after. It would be great if you can help :) I read the below post in cleanmpg forum

"In a Toyota hybrid , there is a "sweet spot" where you are right in between making electricity and using electricity.
THAT is the point where you want to glide at. If you get into regen , you shorten your glide. If you dip into
the battery to extend your glide ( it's tempting, lol ) , you will have to burn more fuel to replace that electricity."


Is this the sweet spot(red arrow)? Or do we even have a sweet spot that enables "almost" infinite gliding?

Yes please, I have a 2009 Insight (ex Japan)
I'm basically asking if there is a sweet spot and if that sweet spot is visually displayed on the dashboard. Apparently Prius have that and it helps those drivers glide and keep the gliding going a lot longer than other hybrids.
