When I bought it, I hadn't originally planned to drive the Insight in the winter. But it does surprisingly well in snow and I've driven it through midwest winters the past 3 years. I've likened hypermiling to snow driving many times so really, it's close to a normal drive for me. Yesterday, however, mother nature reminded us of her power and the car wasn't going anywhere without some help.
I burned more gas in my garden tractor plowing the driveway yesterday than I burn in the car in a week. I love my ol' vintage tractor just the way it is but it could definitely be more fuel efficient. Yesterday was a brute force day, moving this much snow around. And aside from a minor fuel pump repair, the John Deere 318 did her job just fine and saved my back again. It's always nice to have the right tool for the job.
All good now and back on the road with the car again today.
