Hybrids: '00 Insight, had an '03 HCH for 41k miles
Re: Working on an 80 mpg tank (I hope.)
Good Luck! I hope you don't have any mean friends who stop by in your absence (when you're not standing next to your car) and add about 3/4 gallon of gas to your tank. That is is the ultimate cruel joke for a "Hybrid Junky". Especially if they tell you the truth later.
'00 Insight "Wazabi" -75,000+ miles
'03 Toyota Matrix - 81,000+ miles '03 HCH-CVT-OSBM-41,000+ miles (retired 04-10-06) "I'm very secure with my little Insight, no Prius envy here."
Too late, My wife took the car for the evening. You know what that means...
I jokingly asked her not to kill my mpg.
Of course she immediately laughed and confirmed that it will definitely be lower when she returns.

___I am wishing you the best of luck indeed! If that was my wife about to take my car while on a record tank, I think I would have to give up the wife Mine is not going to touch the Accord right now (51.2 mpg @ 467 miles) unless she really persisted and I can only admire your patience in dealing with the request.
___In either case, I was watching your tanks all winter knowing I was cherry picking w/ the Ranger P/U due to the impending/future sale of the Insight. I cringed whenever I saw you had added a tank in the Midwestís blistering cold temps. Your tenacious drive for hypermileage in the Insight even through the coldest winter months is an inspiration to us all.
___Good Luck as I know if it isnít this tank, it will be the next one Ö
