I joined the Insight club!

On November 24th, I went and picked up sheepdog 44's 2000 Honda Insight. I don't need another project, but here I go again! I towed it the 225 miles home with a borrowed 2002 VW Jetta TDI and a tow bar. The TDI got an expected 45 MPG at 73 MPH on the way to get the Insight. And an unbelievable 53 MPG at about 55 MPH on the return trip with the Insight in tow! In the rain! Was the Insight acting as a boat tail?
