Hi Wonderboy,

Where is the green grand prix?

I was at Hybrid Fest in Madison last summer. Of course the car was in the garage, and I rode the motorcycle, which currently barely gets the same mileage as the Insight.

When the weather gets warm next summer, I doubt the motorcycles 79 mpg best will be able to keep up with the car.

I think the Grand Prix guys can kick the snot out of my 'normal' driving style, since I rarely pulse and glide. However, 43 mph seems to be my favorite speed for driving to work on old country roads.

As for boat-tailing; yes I can see the day coming when I would try something like that! It goes without saying that six months would be reserved for sanding/glazing/priming/painting the fiberglass to get that 'smooth' finish.

Jim.
