How fuel efficient is the Honda Insight?

When the Honda Insight was launched in Japan, it was advertised as achieving 95 miles to the gallon. In the USA, they promoted it as a 70mpg vehicle.

Owners have reported 120mpg.

There are many variables that have an overall effect on fuel efficiency, in particular:

  • the speed you go
  • the load you carry
  • wind speeds
  • the hills you climb
  • use of the air conditioning
  • tyre pressure
