FYI, the lie-o-meter in my Insight is 3% optimistic (average). That's not bad, though the average hides two tanks where it was off by ~10%.

If it's missing/bucking at low RPM and under light/moderate loads, sounds like EGR issues (probably blocked passages). If you fix that, lean burn will be more attainable, and mileage should go up quite a bit.

See my Insight thread for the EGR saga, starting at post #52: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post240350
