I've been lurking for awhile and today have signed up to participate in the various discussions.
My wife and I have a long history with Insights. We had a 2006 Insight, the original gen 1 2 seater coupe. The battery started going bad after about 120k, and the new owner replaced it for around $4k, and its still going great. She got lifetime 54.6 mpg commuting 60 highway miles a day!
My previous car was a 2010 gen 2 Insight hatchback. My daughter has it now. Its up to over 110k with no battery or other mechanical problems.
My current car is a 2015 Civic Hybrid. It uses the same, though upgraded, 2 motor system as the gen 1 and gen 2 above. The gen 3 2 motor system is a bit different, and gets better mpg. I looking forward to buying a gen 3 EX early next year.
My goal is to take the Insight MPG CHALLENGE. The challenge is to squeeze-out maximum mpg without making any mechanical modifications. That is; primarily through driving style alone. I invite everyone to take the challenge.
I'm here to learn from others and to share what I have learned
