(1) This is a very new car (11 March 2012 Insight EX), and I fully expect mpg to improve markedly as the engine loosens up. Also, I am still learning how to drive it properly!
(2) We need to take care with this thread to be clear about UK versus US gallons! The replies so far from myself and MarkN are both mpgUK, but a US gallon is only 0.8327 UK gallons. Can we ask those who reply to be very clear and to say (for example) "51 mpgUS" or "61 mpgUK"?

UK gallons or US? If we're not consistent with the units, we can't do meaningful comparisons. (oops, I posted this before reading Alfettaman's reply)

I also suggest adding "modifications applied?" to the list of questions.

I have a 1st Gen so can't report my own numbers but I have been watching the 2nd Gen forum for awhile and have seen a few owners that reported over 100K miles. I'll be watching this thread with great interest as I'm about 9 months away for a car purchase and a new Insight has made the top 3 short list of finalist.

How many miles have you driven your gen two? 8,266 miles

Major repairs? none

Average fuel economy? 50.6 US

Best fuel economy? 55.3 US

Worst fuel economy? 44.0 - tire pressure was down to 30psi cause of the cold

Other comments? Tires at 44psi, Radiator 30% covered for winter in Chicago. I drive mostly short trips on local roads. First oil change and then I took a trip to/from the east coast and got 51.65mpgUS all Xway for 1500 miles. Seems like the first oil change made some real difference in mpg.

Guys, please specify UK or US gallons! Mikejbb has his location in his profile so his is obvious, but we have no idea where CanesFanKen is based - I'm suspecting the US ...

-----------------

Best fuel economy? 53.5 MPG US- I need to change this. I never check this and this post made me mindful. On my way home from work I took things VERY easy, and while it is just a 6 mile drive, I got 59.1.

30,000 miles

Major repairs? None

Average fuel economy? 51.5 MPG, US gallons

Best fuel economy? 58.0

Worst fuel economy? 48.0

Replaced the Dunlops with Michelin Energy's last month. So far about a 3 mpg loss, but a far quieter ride. Not that is really bothered me before, but it is noticeable.

I did have to have the passenger side taillight replaced back in February. A few of the LED s had stopped working. Honda took care of it under warranty, very easy process.
