My handle is "farfel" (Seinfeld reference). I read the post, and figured this would be a great opportunity to educate these car folks about hybrids. Their response:

- First they called my 90 mpg claim "bs"...
- then they pulled my membership.



HA! Lesson learned:
- Be careful what you say to non-hybrid folks.
- They'd rather censor you than learn.
:lol:


EDIT: I humbly request all who read this go to that website, and tell them how WRONG they are.... i.e. tell them your MPG. Thanks.

Wow. Somebody needs to make a video of their commute with the mpg graph showing... No wonder the Insight doesn't sell well in the states. Nobody even knows what they can do...or how to drive them.

I love the part about hybrids not being worth your while due to the expensive battery. We've done 60k+ miles at 65 mpg which comes in about 1k gallons over 4 years. With gas around $2/gal, that's a lot of money saved. Even in our other cars that get over 30 mpg, that's over twice as much money. We figure that at 60k miles, we broke even with the battery. Now, gas is basically half price.
