World's only Diesel Honda Insight

Just completed a 1.2L TDI install in a 2000 Honda Insight on Friday (17JUL09). As I suspected, the Insight is a much better car with diesel power. The jury is still out on fuel mileage but 100 mpg doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility. Take a look at Red Light Racing for build details. More pictures of the completed car and associated components should be added soon. I've started a fuel log of the car on this site. I've cracked the top ten. However, I still need to get the hybrid side of the car working which should increase efficiency 10-15%. The first video of the car can be found at: .

Best wishes,
