If anyone wants to test their Insight's mettle on hills, I would advise about a 30-mile stretch from Rolla, Mo., to Waynesville, Mo., on Interstate 44 -- right in the middle of the Ozark Mountains.

It was cool to get nice mileage going down the hills, but the grades going back uphill are so long and so tough (complete with a nasty head wind) that I drained my battery down to two bars. Two particularly tough stretches -- going uphill from the Little Piney River and going uphill from the Big Piney River.

Still, with the tough conditions, I managed about 56 miles per gallon.

I was born in Rolla, MO. All I can remember as a child was driving over the hills and getting the feeling in my gut :oops: ..
