___You are a real piece of work. Probably 20% of this forums membership has achieved a > 100 mpg segment and there you are in your own little world saying it’s impossible. If you receive it even once, I receive most of the time in warmer weather. Here is a pic of my lmpg at the 58,880 mark after my fifth highest segment run. You make the call …
___Here is a segment from a few days later.
___And here is my personal best although I was at 117.5 when passing O’Hare and it started to rain on another segment a few days later. That day finished up at just 115.x mpg after driving in that mess for another 25 miles
___I have a gauge cluster pic of my first > 100 mpg segment on 03/25, my first 105.1 segment on 04/16, my first 112.5 mpg segment on 04/18 with multiple pics of 114’s, 115’s, 116’s and 117.2 mpg throughout the summer and early fall following. My personal favorite was the pic from 10/29 at 108.1 mpg as seen below. It was a fluke 70 degree day this late in the year for Chicago. A nice tail wind and our absolutely last warm day of the year. It was on our garbage RFG winter blend as well! The 102.x mpg run I had the other night in 40 degree temps was a nice one as well but I had a 10 - 15 miler pushing me 2/3 the way home and 102 mpg segments aren’t worth pics anymore
All of the pics aren’t very pretty and focused of course but I have them. If you want 7 full size gauge cluster pics of the 09/23 - 117.2 run at 400 + KB each, I can E-Mail to you and you can post it here for all to see once you find a place to host it.
___Here is that 108.1 mpg segment from 10/29 on our garbage RFG winter blend garbage mind you!
___I see you are backing away from your proclamations? Now it’s an un-modded
Insight getting 117 mpg. Just look up Car and Drivers 2000 Insight fuel economy challenge if you want the details on that 121.7 mpg segment performed way back in early 2000. Here is the link for your review:
ROAD TEST: HOW WE WON THE INSIGHT FUEL-ECONOMY CHALLENGE. WITHOUT CHEATING. MUCH
___If you haven’t installed the $10.00 worth of parts, spent 20 seconds to install them, and pressed up your tires to at least 50 #’s, you are foolish to tell others what they are not receiving in terms of fuel economy. My offer still stands so any time you want to lose $9,500, just say the word and I will be glad to take it off your hands. Cash speaks louder then anything else you have written so far this week.
PS: I don’t have the fastest Insight by far since that is not why I purchased it. I am proud to say I might have the slowest that achieves the highest fuel economy
Either way, there are a few other Hypermiling Insight’s that can achieve this kind of fuel economy day in and day out. These belong to Rick Reese, Billy, Chisight, and possibly ElectricTroy although I have only seen ElectricTroy discuss the feats, not perform them so far. The lmpg speaks for itself.
