Bought my Insight Thursday and so far, have 3 round trip commutes to work. My commute is 63 miles each way and it's about 1/3 rural state roads, 1/3 interstate highway and 1/3 urban surface roads, and each commute has gotten progressively better as I (re)learn how to drive :D

Day 1: 47.7mg - Day 2: 48.2mpg -Day 3: 49.8mpg (as indicated)

Those numbers are on my commute TO work. My drive home was about 3 mpg less...don't really know why. Living in FL I can't really assume its elevation change, but could be I guess.

well...........Most Insight owners will get better mileage driving south vs. north, and east, vs. west. It's a down hill thing. I'll let you figure that one out.

Well, my commute to work IS mostly south, but here in FL the St. Johns River flows south to north. :D

Download My Tracks for your 3/4G smart phone and do the trip and then take a look at the elevation gain and chart. Very cool to do anyway.

I live near Chicago and it's mostly flat, but I have come to hate the small hills because of the mpg hit. But I've had mine since June and it's a blast to drive.
