My experience (10+ years of owning one) is that open windows mostly don't perceptibly affect the Insight's aero. The only exception is when you have strong crosswinds, when closing the upwind window (but not the downwind one) helps.

I can get 71 mpg on a warm day on a trip like that in my boring and mainstream second gen Insight...
I have had 4 trips now with an indicated FE of 3.2 l/100 km; one 50 mile trip to an airport and 3 22 mile commutes home. 3.2 l/100 km is about 73.5 mpg.
And I look better and talk less crap, or at least that's my perception

75.4 for ~200 miles on the current tank, much of it a ~130 mile round trip at about 65 mph. Hit 80+ in a few spots, but admittedly those were downhills, with foot off gas and regen kicking in.
