I found this site while reading a few threads over on Insight Central (I'm Keen4Green there too) about hypermiling techniques. I'm a first time Honda owner and first time hybrid owner of any kind. I've had my Insight just over a month and absolutely love the car. Yesterday I got 60mpg on a 38 mile (mostly freeway) trip in Los Angeles county.
Prior to the Honda, I drove a 2001 VW New Beetle turbo for 9 years! I also admit I was a leadfoot and regularly drove 75-80 mph. With the Insight I'm a mild mannered driver. Before the Beetle I drove two different BMWs - my 1992 318is was a 4-cylinder and got almost as good gas mileage as the Insight.
Here in Los Angeles I do a lot of freeway/interstate driving, with some city driving on weekends, or when the freeways have accidents and I have to take side streets. My commute is about 80 miles a day, about three days a week.
What I'd like to learn more about is how the regen and battery assist features of my car affect fuel economy, and how I can manipulate them for greater mpg. Since getting the Insight I've been paying more attention to the features of the roads I travel, severity of incline/decline, roughness, etc, and taking advantage of coasting opportunities for 100mpg spurts.
Now I just have to figure out how get up the inclines and over the small yet steep hills here without burning so much fuel.
