Congrats! Silly high MPG numbers like that make me miss my Insight.


I'm off to do a ~160 km round trip on secondary highways in my irksome Metro this aft. I'll be happy to see 70 MPG.

Coming back from a road trip, the glorious 200K mile marker! Woot. Love this car.

Warmer weather is my best friend... this is a round trip on the highway. Doing anywhere between 50-65 MPH, depending on grade (figure 55-60 was goal, interstate is 65-80mph). I figure, no hybrid and has 2 meanwells to charge a large and heavy stereo... these cars are just amazing.

(I don't care what the price of gas is, it's a hyperlier life)

I just happened to wonder how long ago I bought this car and saw the date of my first post about Frogger on this site... exactly 6 years ago!

And I realize I haven't even posted on this car in like 2 years... lol.

Still trucking. Still just a gasser (hybrid removed, in fact, have batteries and DC converter if anybody wants to throw me an offer! ). Recent job move is closer to home, so MPG has gone down, but fillups aren't as often either!

Overall, best car I've ever owned. Wish I had more time and money to play with it, but love it every day throwing it down the road regardless.
