Lots of snow and ice this season. Front tires aired-down for traction. Dome lights inadvertently left on, drained both batts. Jumped and driven to recalibrate batt. Will apply to next tank most.

A family friend borrowed the car and drove an unknown number of miles on a full tank. The trip and FE MID display was used to estimate the number of gallons filled. In past experience, it has been about 12% "optomistic". 0.456 gallons are calculated as unaccounted.

Mixed drivers.

Recent oil change and trans fluid drain/fill.

The crummy dunlop tires lose air from plug repairs -- patching is required to maintain pressure.

ESTIMATE: The car reset the trip automatically before I could record the amount. Using the +12% display average and the posted range of 489 miles for 10.6 gallons, that equals 46.13 mpg. Take that, divide by 1.12 = 41.18 mpg. The known variable is the fuel used: 7.709 = a distance of... 317 mi.

Usage: commuting, hauling cargo, and some fast trips.

Note: Teamed-up with the Integra to haul 40% of a Craigslisted children's outdoor playhouse. Who needs a truck when you have 2 hatchbacks!

Comment: For local onsite work visit, there are some challenging routes that are taking its toll on FE. Forced regen is a common issue with downtown-KC driving and steep hills.

The fuel-up was not performed by me, and no receipt/record was retained.

Rationale: I recall seeing an observed 42.4 mpg while driving the vehicle on the weekend just before fuel-up on a Tuesday. The vehicle display is generally +10% actual, with a 2% decrease added for the other driver's style of operation, and wiggle room for error.

Traded vehicles with my Wife -- she drives more miles/day to work, so she has the Insight for a while due to gas prices. Some of this tank was part of the return from Omaha (52 miles) and a trip downtown (4 pax) and to the Ballpark (3 pax); otherwise, more tanks can demonstrate a solid baseline without technique used.

First true road trip for the Hybrid: from Home, up to Omaha (with some driving around there), and back home.

I'm back in the Integra for the duration...

Average speed: 32 mph.

First true road trip for the Hybrid: from Home, up to Omaha (with some driving around there), and back home.

Average speed: 57 mph.

I tried 10-under the limit (60/70) and after a while, compromised on 5-under, with my passenger (65/70).

Day 1 Wind: 20 MPH to almost exactly 90-degrees side-wind -- vectoring it to ~10 on the nose. A/C used with temps in the high 70's
Day 2 Wind: Perfect 25-30 MPH NNW Wind directly on the tail, but cooler temps: ranging from 53-65F. No A/C needed.

I was surprised at how good the car performs on long trips. The seats are very supportive, the hatch opening allows convenient loading of luggage, and the iPod connector allowed for "consensus control" through the head unit.

At higher speeds, it really struggles on hills, often changing CVT ratios to allow 4K RPM, or even higher if the battery was spent. 47-48 MPG is still pretty good for this trip -- no complaints here.

The multi-function display has an overly optimistic FE average, but a rough guesstimate of 5% less is generally pretty close.

The cruise control with the ECON button engaged is frankly ridiculous. It's supposed to drop a few MPH on hills/load (like an EcoDriver would), but halfway up the hill, it decides to accelerate back to the setpoint at high RPM and isn't very economical (it needs to be truly load-based, . So, the ECON setting was left "off" which cycled the A/C more aggressively. Honestly, the EPA tested the car with both modes and found no statistically significant difference in FE.

***BEST TANK EVER!***

- After driving about 50 miles on this tank, I noticed that the MFD showed about 59-60 MPG (so far, it has been about +5% off, but a really good tank was forming)
- Throughout the remaining tank, I really drove it carefully: slower acceleration, avoided using Battery Assist as much as possible, and kept the speed down.
-Weather conditions were OK, not great -- it got chilly and windy for several days, but the FE didn't drop much.
-ECON Button: Off when I wanted precise throttle input / On when needing more charge or for engine auto-stop.
-Slower routes were chosen for less wind resistance.

Temps: 40F-85F

We plan to take a road trip to Omaha with it this weekend, so true highway FE will result.

EDIT: Definite Short Fill -- Averaging with next tank for consistency.

Odo: 5721-6136

Opening Comment: This was likely an inadvertent short-fill (premium fuel flows faster due to increased pump pressure from lower demand from other customers filling at the same time, and could "click-off" sooner in this case). The fuel gauge was noted to have moved from F quite quickly on the next tank. The average should round-out any errors in the long run. The "first-click" method has been used as a consistent fill for all vehicles tested.

Driving Style: Some cruise control, but mostly careful attention to FE with slower highway cruise speeds. City driving with passengers and A/C hits FE hardest.
