    I drove several Insights while working for the Honda Dealership. One of the best hybrids in my opinion, I personally saw 72MPG on a customer's DIC.

    I heard a story of a guy who kept burning up O2 Sensors in his insight and was taking his insight in to the dealer for warranty. Everytime he came in, the techs would notice MPGs in excess of 100. Turns out he was using a tuner to lean out the A/F, therefore the higher MPGs and burned out O2 sensors. Needless to say, his warranty was revoked once they seen that the ECU had been tampered with. Either way, without a warranty getting even close to 100MPG would be a worthwhile investment.

    Tried the Prius twice. Could not and still can't really see point. A modern diesel will give better overall mpg in real world.
