I am thinking about getting an Insight because my daily commute is 42 miles one way. The drive is about 98% highway with a max speed limit of 65 mph and 2% rural with a max speed limit of 55 mph. I have ~ 2 stops each way and have to slow down a couple of times.
Here are my questions:
1. I have been hearing the press reports and I am wondering (after I learn to drive the Insight) what kind of gas milage can I expect?
2. About how long does it take to learn to drive the Insight to get top milage?

Hi Phil; Search the forums for lots of detailed info re: fuel economy. If your primary objective is maximum mpg, the 5-speed is the way to go. Due to it's lean-burn capability, higher engine compression ratio, etc, it acheives about 18 mpg higher than the automatic version (CVT).

I have purchased 3 new Insights. My 2002 got an average of 83 mpg, my 2003 got 85, and now my 2005 is averaging 87.6 mpg after 11,000 miles. I'm learning to drive better......
