Thanks to this website I have bought the Insight. Took it home Tuesday and brought my daughter to horseback lessons 100 mile round trip-64.8 mpg. It included a BFH(big hill) up to the soaring airport (average was 74 before hill). Then on Wendesday I went to MA 700 mile round trip- 56 mpg. but traveling 65-75 with air on most of the time. I just got back from WV 1000 mile round trip with super big hills and - 55.8 mpg. The car now has over 2400 miles and it's the best thing I ever drove. I'm going back to the dealer on Thursday to look at a 5 speed. I'm going to give the cvt to the kids for college. Much difference in the two? What to expect?
Thanks again. (I still haven't seen another one on the road)

I noticed that even on the longest hill the battery charge didn't get below 30-40%. When it got that low the car seemed to charge the batterys more readily and aggressively. (My imagination?). Do you use up the battery pack more readily with a 5 speed because you are more in control? Does this have an effect on battery life? I know there are many times with the cvt that I wish I could use the assist more.
