Steve,
You need to go into your garage and change your vehicle type from gasoline to hybrid. It's difficult enough competing with Aero Civics and crazy Metro pilots.

Welcome Steve! Awesome job! It's numbers like that that pretty well make up my mind that I need to get a HCH2 if I ever get enough money together. After going with Tom, Wayne, and Tony to the meeting in Oak Creek, WI a couple of weeks ago, I came to the conclusion that my type of driving would be better suited to the Honda instead of the Prius. If I lived in a big city I would probably go with the Prius. My dream would be to have an Insight but there are 4 in my family and they wouldn't fit. Again, awesome numbers. Next goal is 1,100 or 1,200?

I'm thinking that the 5MT HCH-1 has more hypermiling potential than the CVT HCH-II. I think that Wayne would agree. A used HCH-1 might replace the VX some day, unless I can find a diesel hybrid instead.

I suppose that since I'm pretty good with a 5-speed that a HCH-1 may be something I could wring more mileage out of. What was the last year for the HCH-1 with a 5-speed?

2005 I think. in addition to the 5 speed, it also had lean burn. The HCH-1 CVT does not have lean burn. The HCH-II only comes with CVT and does not have lean burn either.

I want a 595 mile tank. Which is 50mpg.

I thought it was 103 miles but looking closer it was 1003 *drool*
