The Insight averaged 100 MPG for this stretch on my drive down to college. To clarify, it's OH-117E, not North Thayer Rd. North Thayer Rd has too many stop signs.

OH-117E is mostly 55 MPH, with a couple slow downs through town to 35 or 45. Mostly mild hills, not much overall elevation change.

US 11 along the western edge of Virginia.

Couple years ago going to DC to visit my folks, decided to get the heck off the Interstate and see something different.

What a fantastic trip! The car sang on US 11. The swoops and dives were exactly right for my HCH1 to whistle up a record 66 miles per gallon on that leg. I had never before and never afterward got numbers as good as that.

Ah, the 15% to 20% of roadway deaths are to pedestrians.There is an up-tick in the death-rate in states legalizing mary-jane. We should be able to determine a plus or minus death factor due to eco-drivers.
