I'm sure many of you hypermiles will not be that impressed, but I got 74 mpg the other day on my way home. Yeah!!! I was excited. I ususally average around 53 mpg. I purchased my Insight to travel in the carpool lane so my speed is usually in the 60-80 mph which doesnt get the highest mpg. The other day I was really late going home so I missed the carpool hours and having very high winds on the San Mateo bridge and drafting with the trucks I did mangage to get 74. My old high was 68

75 MPG on my CVT...

Filled up the tank (7 gals...) in NJ, drove back to NYC using a mix
of route 10 (some stoplights), I-80 -> GW Bridge -> West Side Hgwy, then about 1/2 mile of local streets:

Wound up the 47 mile trip with.... 75.4 mpg

best prior sustained mileage on my CVT was about 60 mpg

(I was careful _not_ to overfill, so this wasn't an
artifact of the mumble mumble getting gasoline in it).

Things in my favor:

Engine was still warm, so no fuel wasted starting up.
Pretty good tailwind...

And I kept below 60 mph.
