Can you explain more about "extraordinary" circumstances? What temperature? At what avg speed do you drive, what is the % city-highway, what driving technique do you use, do you have mods?

From what I've experienced in my Insight when driving in city, if I P&G with the engine on, I cannot get over ~85 mpg. If I P&G with the engine off, or P&EOC, I can get as high as 130+ mpg (highest I've got is 132 mpg).

On the highway its a totally different story, Driving with load in Lean Burn all the way at 75-85 km/h (42-52 MPH). Target is 125-145 mpg on the Inst. fuel consumption bar graph.

I get a big hit too when temps are lower. Struggling to get 90+ mpg. lowest temp recorded was 12C so I haven't drived the car in very cold conditions yet, i.e below 0C. Hope it stays in the 70+ mpg area .
