Nathan, please don't leave us in suspense. And don't listen to anybody who says it's a bad idea, neither 'cause whatever it is, we'll all learn something. We always do! My only hope is that it won't maim or kill.I’ve had an idea of epic proportion’s that could possibly gain more efficiency if anybody has any results.
Awesome to hear this. I'm on the first tank of my newest Insight since all repairs etc. have been done (plugs/EGR/etc) and am doing exactly what you are. Nice to see what the car can do! I'm about 1/3 of the way through my tank. Your MPG is pretty excellent for the cold weather up there, kudos.Well, I think I found the gas mileage sweet spot for my car. RPMs at about 1900, plus warmish temps - say mid-40s, Potenzas back on it and sideskirts in place netted me 63.4 mpg (tank avg so far after 80 miles 65% of which were highway on NJ TPK, some of which was at 75+ mph) -- that translated to driving between say 50-60 mph. If you can tolerate the slower speed, you can wring some pretty decent MPG out of a CVT car with more than 300k miles on it. (I turned it over 300k this morning). I can still get 53-54 mpg all day long going 75 on the highway.
Only when you take yourself and your Insight too seriously.Hahaha, at what point are you no longer a young fella and officially an old fart??
