I'm a reporter with the St. Paul Pioneer Press in Minnesota and I'm interested in doing a story about hybrid car owners and the techniques they use to maximize gas mileage.

I'd like to talk to any Insight owners in Minnesota who are particularly attentive to keeping track of their mileage, or who make a conscious effort to get the best possible fuel economy. They can contact me via e-mail, [email protected], or by phone, 651-228-5560. Thanks.

Hi Richard:

___I don’t know about an Insighter specifically from Minnesota but you may want to PM any of the Insight drivers listed in’s own lmpg database or the few Insighter’s posting tank to tank numbers over at in their own real time - Real Mileage Database? Although not an Insight, there is always John1701a and his 01 and 04 Prius that you can read all about at of all places … ;)

___Good Luck

I presume you mean coasting, drafting, tire inflation, synthetic oil, weight reduction, radiator blocking, hot air intakes, light weight oil, streamlining, conserving inertia, upshifting, block heaters. Many of these techniques work on regular cars as well, but the instantaneous and lifetime efficiency readouts make the Insight a veritable dream for learning. A couple of members have achieved over 1,000 miles on a 10.5 gallon fill up. :shock:
