    A hybrid car with a manual? Wow, unheard of today.

    I wished it was like this when I was driving in Atlanta last time. Everyone seems to do the opposite everywhere I go, they go 5 UNDER the speed limit and I'm going 5 over weaving in and out of all these slow asses. It's infuriating. I keep looking down at the speedo and yeah, im barely speeding.

    When you fill up you need to shake the car to slosh fuel in tank and will burp out any air in filler bends.

    Speed limit on i285 is 65 not 55. Nobody in Atlanta drives the speed limit anyway.

    You may not have gotten flipped off as much if you would’ve stayed in the right lane instead of clogging up the middle lane.

    Please don’t hog the middle lane if you’re slow!!! I hate people behaving like that! Everytime I find someone hogging the middle lane going slow I wish I had in my car sidewinder missiles like 007 to blow their Prius (or Insight) up!!! By the way Doug, driving with slippers is really dangerous (by the way in Italy is forbidden). Always wear closed shoes (at least with an ankle lace) when driving!

    I had a 1996 Honda Civic HX... incredible car. It was manual and geared lower, and I would average about 48 mpg going 65-70 mph. Never did the hyper mile thing tho. Should have given it a try. Honda stopped making them because it was giving other hybrids too much competition

    In college I drove a 1984 Dodge colt made by Mitsubishi. It got 40 miles per gallon but performed like a turtle on the interstate. Now, in my 1987 Toyota Supra Turbo, leaving stoplights I always wonder: why am I so far out in front of the other cars?

      The future isn't here yet. Electric cars need to last 75 - 100 years to start being good for the environment.

      You don’t need power steering at speed, especially in that car. Your brake booster also stores enough vacuum for at least one hard braking application, and even then, you can still stop a car fairly quickly with no power brakes.

    You could've get better mileage if only one person was in the car and also just leave the gas tank almost empty - may be 3 gallons of fuel tops. always shed weight when possible :)

    I feel like killing the engine is cheating. "Yeah, you get amazing gas mileage if you roll it down a hill with the engine off". What's next, shooting a grappling hook at the ass end of a semi trailer and getting drug around? If youre trying to get an accurate reading of your engine's gas consumption, it seems a little unfair to not run the engine at certain times. IMO
