I just don't know why the OP got bent out of shape by people directly answering the question with the best answer.

There were other opinions thrown in there too, but that happens in every thread, and I consider it a courtesy. If I'm a hiker asking for directions to a trail, someone could simply tell me which direction to find it, but I'd sure appreciate it if they also let me know if a river washed it out and it's now a cliff.

If you can't get along on this forum, I don't know what forum a person would fit in.

Snowflake syndrome, mommy always let them have their way as a kid, and as an adult they don't know how to handle conflict, even as mild as being told something they don't like.

I don't know what kind of reply would be satisfactory to them.

Maybe big letters that say "Pardon my speed changes, I'm getting 65 MPG!"

there's an early Insight on base here that has stickers all over it
weight/hp = fuel economy, it's covered in stuff to distract other drivers

there is a rabit with rear wheel skirts that has a piece of paper in the window explaining some of his modifications
I think it says 50mpg somewhere on it too

I saw a silver insight on base this morning with a "MPG" sticker in his back window
it was basicly this, without the number



his license plate frame had some other info like 67mpg city, ect...

and he was "hypermiling" when I passed him
