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?

I've drven one for 3 months - a manual.
The car's lifetime MPG is 55.9, but I've rarely had a tankful that low.
Recent tankfuls have averaged 58, 61, 63.

A local couple have been driving an Insight for a few years and
report 45 MPG in the city (Boston), but 65 on highway trips out of state.
45 mpg is the lowest I've ever heard of.
