That is a car I service on a regular basis for the owner. We just serviced the car Thursday.

The bike rack on that car is a 1UP brand. I installed one of my hidden trailer hitches on the car about a year ago to accommodate the rack. I also had to make a bit of drop hitch adapter to bring the rack down.

I’m not sure he is in the forum on a regular basis. I’ll find out.

I go to the University of Cincinnati. Just recently moved back to campus with my somewhat recently acquired 02 Silverstone G1.

Was going for a run yesterday... spotted this. Thought my car was stolen and robbed of its aero panels.

The guy was sitting in his car so I walked over to him... understandably he was a little confused at first, but as soon as I said "Hey, I have one of these!" he realized I was just a friendly geek.

Ha! Go Bearcats! LOL
I graduated from CCM... well... in 2000. I was driving an Escort then, but good to know Insights are floating around campus.

I got a ferry onto the Orkney mainland yesterday morning (not in my insight) and a spotted a Citrus Yellow heading the opposite direction a couple of miles later! Can't remember when I last saw one and they are pretty rare in the UK so quite a surprise.

Spotted a Citrus G1 on I-450 in Portland, Oregon, at around 2:30 heading north, Got off at exit 1D, Just a bit too far to beep and wave. Plus I was driving a 2CV which scares folks without waving at them.

Spotted a BLUE insight at the intersection of EAST WEST BOULEVARD and ROUTE 2 in SEVERNA PARK/MILLERSVILLE area in Maryland. We both waved and he TURNED North onto the Route 10/100 West ramp. Anyone in or near ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY in Maryland? Chris
I've seen a guy in a blue one in Baltimore city, chatted at a red light for a second but don't know what's up with him other than that!

Beautiful clean silver Insight on the Texas A&M University at Galveston parking lot last Thursday, 061021, about 3pm... Looked brand new from the road. Happened to notice it while someone else drove us around Pelican Island on a photo shoot

If flat towing, can you leave the engine on idling in neutral and have the car do regenerative charging while "coasting" for the entire tow? (He asks somewhat facetiously and somewhat out of genuine curiosity).

Er, that seems like a wholey terrible idea on so many levels and definitely isn't advantageous. It won't fill the battery from idling in neutral unless it's super low and then it will stop doing it before it's full. If you were to leave it in gear it would probably damage stuff, your tow vehicle would have a harder time towing and use more gas and even if it could work it would top off the battery in like 10 miles of doing that and you'd likely end up with something severely damaged. Absolute best case scenario you fill the battery pack up which is worth a couple tenths of a gallon at best and your tow vehicle has used multiple gallons of extra gas and your engine has massive wear because it's not designed to turn that high while remaining cold the whole time.

Funny side note you can charge a leaf or similar fully electric vehicle by yanking it around and forcing it to regen but you're probably creating a lot of heat since the system isn't designed to regen that long. I've seen videos of pickup trucks towing Leafs er Leaves? or is it in the same vain as Prii so it's Levi?

I've occasionally seen a Citrus sitting in an apartment complex parking lot in Brighton, CO on my drive to/from work. I stopped by and checked it out...

Got home and checked the Registry, looks like it might belong to IC member skleasia.
Howdy!

Okay so it's not an Insight but I thought y'all would appreciate seeing our dear cousin....
This is in the Baltimore burbs.
I talked to the guy for a sec and his first line was "you wanna race?" 😂
