Hi to everyone

Hello,

New guy on the forum.

Driving a '05 Honda Insight 5-speed for a year now.

Mods: WAI, Mobil 1 0W-20, tires pumped to 55psig, extended engine bay belly aero-cover, ScanGuage.

Working on improving my daily commute fuel economy - so far I have averaged 74LMPG.


Wife's car - '99 Acura TL. Looking for ideas to improve it.
So far: Tires pumped to 44psig, ScanGuage.
Future plans: aero belly pan, lowering kit, educate the driver.

Looks like there's lots of info to read up on here.

Regards

I was wondering when a insight owner was going to register and get the #1 gaslog spot. Now we need someone with a moped to beat that.

I got my moped out today, switching it to synthetic fluids tomarow, not sure on milage with it yet, but my honda cb100 gets atleast 80mpg, it drips more then it burns.

I'm thinking that the insight could benifit from a better air filter (new micro fiber filters from amsoil? don't get a K&N unless you want to fill your engine with fine engine killing grit) LED marker lights might help if you drive at night much (or have day time running lights), removing your A/C if you have it.

I think the insight sees the most of its benefits from driving techniques and route. They're 100mpg+ vehicles under the right conditions. Honda really went all out designing them,
