I've taken what I've learned from driving the Insight and applied it to a recent trip to hilly Pittsburgh with my wife's Pilot, that normally gets around 19 mpg overall.

What I'm really happy to report is that the past two tanks on the Insight (over 1400 miles) have yielded 76.4 mpg and 75.2 mpg. With fall temps in the air too, not bad....must also have something to do with the switch to Mobil 1.

I wonder how I'll do once I install MIMA??

no mods yet. One of the last of the current MIMA's on the way....

I taught my son how to drive, and therefore he routinely employs the driving techniques that I have learned while driving my Insight. His car is our old '96 Oldsmobile Achieva, which the EPA spec's in the low 20's. He typically gets almost 30! I can't wait to see what he can get when this car is replaced with a Corolla or a Civic.

... hypermiling in my '01 Z28 ...managed 36mpg.
... Those techniques really work very well in any car!
Nice!

I for one believe that, about working in just about every car - it's simply a case of slowing down and avoiding the "red light races."
