Hello. I have a 2000 Honda Hybrid that I take EVERYWHERE I go. It has about 120k and ALL the work that has been done is 1 tire set at 80k, oil changes at 3500 miles and a EGR valve at 85k. I get about 56-60 mpg using all types of driving styles and have switched to a larger tire for better road handling. I have a manual tranmission that is not as quick as a Auto. I do use the AC on Econ mostly, but have used it going to Tahoe up the grades. Going to Las Vegas, we rec. approx 63 mpg and when I went to Bridgeport, Ca. I got 71 coming back to Los Angeles. It is the BEST car that I have EVER owned!! Our next one will be a Civic Hybrid and we will keep the Insight. GET ONE!!!!!!!!
