Just got my new Insight. Got rid of a 2010 Toyota Prius. So.... my owners manual really is silent on the issue so I will defer to the experts out there in the forum. With the Prius there is an indicator, gauge, that shows how efficient you are driving. So with the charging indicator, there is a narrow green strip that grows into a wider green strip. To get maximum regen braking/charging am I to attempt to keep the indicator in the thin green area of the indicator. Does doing this keep the car from totally using the conventional brakes. Also with the throttle area, there is a similar blue bar area and then a power area that indicates how aggressive you are with the throttle input. If I keep the throttle on the first half of the blue area, am I using electric only? Please keep in mind I am using eco and ev modes all the time. So far I have 60 miles on car and the car shows 58.7 mpg. About 80% town and 20% highway. I do have mine set up on the center console to show when motor/battery is being used. Love the car and glad to be done with the Prius. Will say I put $0 into the Prius and had 172,000 miles. Hope the Honda is the same. My only dig is that there is no spare tire and that they didn’t even provide a can of fix a flat.
