I just discovered the MPG feature on my insight, it hovers around 6-7 MPG just maintaining speed whether its 45 or 65. 95% of my driving is all flat highway. How accurate is the Edge Insight in the MPG dept?
Thanks :dunno:

I havnt used mine for mpg's but have you hand calculated to see where you actually are? You may want to check the tire size option and make sure its correct.

I don't know how the Insight compares to the CS, but when I had the Edge CS on my truck (I know, we're talking different trucks here), spec'd for tires and everything, it never read higher than 6.9 MPG, when I get about a consistent 13.5 - 14 MPG hand calculated.

Tire size was a tad off, but still reading 8-9mpg holding 35mph and 7-8mph holding 45mph. The way my gas guage moves it doesn't suprise me. next time i fill it I will hand calculate.

how is it set up to display? I have the cts and with the most recent update with the mileage coach displayed you have two options. 1. is a difference between the instant mpg and the average mpg. With this display i have never seen more than 20 mpg difference. most of the time its around 5-15.
The 2nd display mode shows both the instant and the average. On long trips i have seen the average go up to 30. The instant normally hovers around 20-25 and will decrease as you increase acceleration.

Yea the MPG on the Insight is not even close! I have used it and it is completely worthless. Other than that the Insight is awesome!!

Hand calculated my one way drive home, about 17MPG, it seems my tank runs down quicker than that though

Anyways, at the end of this tank I'll do another calculation over the full tank
