2010 Honda Insight: The Fuel Miser

August 18, 2009

I was fueling up our 2010 Honda Insight yesterday and had a brief moment of annoyance when the gas pump seemingly shut off just a few moments after I started it. The auto-stop must have kicked in before the tank was actually full, I thought. Nope. I was just used to heavy drinkers like our long-term M3 and Challenger. After 200 miles of driving in the Insight, the car only needed about five gallons of fuel.

Certainly, it can take years to reap any sort of significant savings via a hybrid's reduced fuel consumption. But only having to spend $15 or so for a half-tank of fuel is a pretty nice feeling nonetheless.
