The Insight averaged 100 MPG for this stretch on my drive down to college. To clarify, it's OH-117E, not North Thayer Rd. North Thayer Rd has too many stop signs.

OH-117E is mostly 55 MPH, with a couple slow downs through town to 35 or 45. Mostly mild hills, not much overall elevation change.

2013 Toyota Prius C (my car) 55-75 MPG
2015 Mazda 3 iTouring Hatchback w/ Tech Package (wife's car) 35-45 MPG
