Ouch! It's a big week for pushing new people to other forums.

More than that- stop thinking of 35-45 mph as slow. You can get outrageous mpg at those speeds, and in most non-interstate situations you're actually travelling at those speeds anyway. Just by admitting that and not spending all your time sprinting to 50-60 and braking again you'll get great numbers.

Welcome to Ecomodder, and congratulations on the Insight. I'm jealous- there was one locally to me when I was shopping, but I needed something bigger.
