hello all, well i got a 2012 insight and i decided to hypermile the best i could in prime time traffic, i drove a total of 80 miles round trip from 3:45pm to 5:45pm, so traffic was steady, on the way there i drafted cars, ironically a prius most of the way there! and i averaged 55.8 mpg i drove mostly 65mph, i had the radio on and i had the fan on without a/c. it was a very nice ride.

On the way home i decided to take the truck side on the turnpike and i drafted some big trucks, i stayed about 2 seconds behind them and it was really fun, we averaged between 65 and 77mph and i got some sweet mpg! on the way home i averaged 58 mpg, now i would consider this a mild hypermile challenge
as i had the fan running normal tire pressure and a couple of times giving a llot of gas, but the honda really impressed me, nice and quiet and my gps worked perfectly, comfortable as well! so i averaged the whole trip 56.6 mpg, not that bad!!!!!!:D
