"The good thing about these mpg numbers coming from someone who has had both a 2001 Honda INsight and 2007 Civic Hybrid...is that you DON'T have to try to get good mpg in this car. It just happens =)" I don't understand this. I have a 2005 Insight, same as the 2001, with a 5 speed manual, and if I try to get bad gas mileage numbers I still end up with better than 43. The first tank or two of owning the car I drove around in 3rd gear all the time. I thought it kept the RPMs low enough for decent MPG but high enough for quick acceleration...I got 49MPG average over those couple of fill ups. Trying to get good gas mileage I get 80+MPG. Hell, I drove out to Kansas from NY across the Adirondack Mountains doing 70+MPH and I still got almost 60MPG. Also, normal driving of a 2008 Civic 4 door 60/40 highway/city yields about 40MPG. More space, proper manual gear box, 4 doors and several thousand dollars less? The Civic sounds appealing. 12/17/2009 461.90Mi 9.230Gallons $27.68 50.0MPG 12/31/2009 433.80Mi 9.116Gallons $25.88 47.6MPGReport it
