Re: Do we have a Web administrator who maintains the Mileage database?

The database looks to be out of synch, the 5-speed Insight bar shows if I click on the CVT Insight bar.

Sent a notice to administrator 2-3 weeks ago, no response.

Database is meaningless now,...

Re: Maintenance Question

A simple thing you can try - a "forced" charge.

Drive your last 10 miles or so with your headlights on.
See if that will boost your battery state of charge.

Re: Chevrolet Volt concept... plug-in hybrid

I'd buy a Volt after 1 year in production, let them work the bugs out.

And it could look like a Vega, I'd trade in my Insight.

Re: How many MPG posts are honest

No cutting corners from me when it comes to MPG calculations.

What you see in the database for my Insight are actual numbers, not from the FCD. Tank after tank since the car was driven from the...

Re: How Long Till We average 65 MPG?

Well, it's back to 65 MPG again after a 2 week drop.

This may the last time for this season, now that cooler weather has settled in.

Way to go!!

Re: An open letter to the "big guns" on the mileage database...

First off, I'm not a TCH owner.

But a possible answer to filling a 17.2 gallon fuel tank to 20 gallons is an "overfill".
You can continue to slowly pump fuel until the system is full (up to the...

Re: Buy an Insight?

If you can find one, you better snatch it up.

If gasoline prices continue this upward trend, Insights will command premium prices.

As far as service, parts, and costs: I've had my Insight over...

Re: Dramatic MPG Drop. Need Help.

I would get a second opinion - and have the code read and reset.

After the reset, see if the code reappears. The ECM may be in limp home model - open loop and not closed loop with the O2...

Re: How Long Till We average 65 MPG?

Great job in your new "little beast"!

I find that immediately after refueling, it's easy to get a great run on the FCD. But it doesn't last. Darn.

Enjoy your Insight.

Re: How Long Till We average 65 MPG?

If my math is correct, dumping the last false entry would take our average to 66.6 MPG.

That's more in line with what the Insight is capable of, but we could still improve on that.

Question How Long Till We average 65 MPG?

Based on a similar thread in the HCH II forum, I'll ask the same question.

What's holding us back?

Can everyone slow down a few MPH and save a bunch of MPG's?

Can someone dump that...

Re: 15% reduction in MPG after 1st oil change

Have you checked the oil level? Make sure they didn't overfill it.
That will hurt your FE.

Just a thought.

Is this the effect of the lean burn/purge cycle?

My 5-speed Insight will see a slight burst of power and a 1-2 MPH increase when the purge cycle hits. While locking my foot on the go pedal, no...
