Most of my driving is on rural roads, but last weekend I took a trip to Philly which involved 95% highway driving. With A/C blasting I averaged 72 mpg in my MT Insight. I know this is not much for the hypermilers, but I am really happy :D

Yup. The Insight shines on the highway. I routinely get 75 MPG going 65 MPH on the Interstate. The problem is the darn stop signs in town...

Experience is showing me that these Insights do indeed "shine" on the highway runs; i.e., somewhere about ten to twenty miles or better. Yesterday, after a bit more than a twenty five mile run, the MPG was 65.1 for the day.

As for those rural dirt roads, which we have a lot of here in the resort areas, experience is showing me that the only way to come close to keeping the MPG up, is to slow the car down; twenty to thirty MPH or so.
