Aquamarine? ok well now im going to have to find that one, just when you thought you knew all the crayon colors in the box...Great article. It would have been cool if it showed the Aquamarine and Blue colors too. It takes serious focus to get that many miles per U.S. gallon.
Maybe the author meant 83 miles per Imperial gallon. Otherwise, 83 mpg is a bit....of a stretch.
The Insight was EPA rated at 61 city and 70 mpg highway when it came out in 2000.
For the manual transmission Insights, that has since been revised to 48-49 city and 58-61 mpg highway based on the EPA's new testing methodology...which, given the way most people drive their Insights, is fair.
Ok how did you rig your meter?
Maybe because many different languages are spoken in European countries whereas as ‘Merica?The UK Government fuel consumption figures (mpg/l/100km) were as follows:

Extra Urban: 94.2 / 3.0
Combined: 83.1 / 3.4
CO2 Emission: 80

There's a photograph of a UK registered citrus in the article, but I don't think it's a UK website.
Imperial gallons do flatter our numbers!

Edit: Fascinating how our display shows a (!) symbol for the handbrake, while the US has BRAKE. Just noticed that.
