poor gas mileage

I recently purchased a 2002 automatic Insight from a dealership. On the trip home (125 miles) I averaged 41 mpg! This is so far from the 65 - 67 mpg I expected that I am very concerned about a malfunction (although the vehicle passed its 18-point inspection perfectly). Does anyone have any suggestions on where to begin the troubleshooting process? :(

CVT mileage is much lower than the manual. I think on average the CVT drivers report 45-60mpg. When i first got my CVT Insight, I was getting 38-42, after a short while I was getting 48-54 and now with the cold weather approaching, the mileage has dropped to about 45-46 mpg.

What was the lifetime MPG's on the car?
