Welcome to the forum!

I don't have a boat tail and I get phenomenal MPG in summer with P&G. My trick is that I charge my battery with a 350 mA grid charger and I never do regen if I'm not in deceleration fuel cutoff, so this way there is no electricity produced by gasoline. When my state of charge is low I simply recharge it or if I'm going on a longer trip I let it do its things.

I also did some modifications to help but I would say that driving technique is 85% of it.

The IMA inhibit switch (Calpod switch ) is esential in the Insight. This is one of the best mod you can do.
