All Insights use the CVT automatic.

I am 90% sure I had the eco assist on, as I said I'm going to take a second go at one when I have the opertunity to see if I net any better results.

Though my opinion of it not being worth it to ecodrivers/hypermilers stands even if I go back and get 55 mpg.

I'm all for saving the planet but you can't be killing my wallet at the same time.
I'm not going to be paying $6,000 more for a car that will only save me $2,000 - $3,000 in gas over the next 150,000 miles, and thats IF I don't need to pay to have the battery pack replaced.

Though I am debating about buying a hybrid or plug in hybrid for my wife in about 3 years, will have to see what comes out as time goes on.

Driving from Raleigh, NC to Baltimore, Md she will average about 37/38 mpg but then when she is running around town doing errands she her average drops to about 25 mpg.
