Yeah, my shifting needs work, I'm not the greatest and I'm noticing the assist comes on alot and my battery drains and wasn't coming up until I hit the brake regen switch, so I figured that out and I'm using the auto stop now since I think I have the hang of it, but according to my dash, my 5 mile trip was done at about 39 MPG..

Wish there were a video for G1 Insight owners to watch and have explained how to properly drive the car to it's fullest potential. I never know what RPM on this car to shift at, but on my bike I shift at 4.5k revs.

It's funny, every time I stop somewhere, I have at least one person ask me what kind of car I'm driving..lol Who knew to get attention, one just needs to switch from more power to more efficient.

Elhigh, where in TN are you? I'm going to be in the Bristol area this weekend.
