Insight on Maui
By RicCorless on
2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback
Since moving to Maui, the Insight has
been the perfect vehicle. Regular
gasoline at $2/gallon - and driving
about 700 miles a month for pleasure,
the car is delivering 72-mpg! We don't
use the A/C - it doesn't get hot in
Maui - which helps the mileage a lot.
We've renovated our home, and all
materials except major appliances were
transported with this vehicle! I left
a superb Mercedes behind, and miss only
the sound system.
The incredible fuel efficiency, and
construction materials which will not
rust in a high-salt environment!
Add door panel trim to reduce paint
damage from pigs who don't respect
neighbor's property. Replace engine
drive A/C compressor with electric
version (like Prius): constant
compressor rpm translates to higher
