I went through that phase in 2008, particularly in the summer, with my Insight and VX. Since then I have sold both vehicles and bought my Altima Coupe and a couple of motorcycles.

Now I am selling the first bike so I will have the 06 Rebel and the 71 CB350. In the whole process my average mileage has remained basically the same, close to 60 MPG. This winter it got depressing when the weather prevented me from riding the bikes and I was using about 54 gallons of fuel in the Altima per month. This last month I have not emptied the Altima tank yet from the beginning of April. The Rebel is 5 cents a mile and the CB is about 6, while the Altima is about 12.
