What is your FC rating? I get 21km/l only. Millage 4000+km. Not change to synt oil yet. I think Singapore road can't get 24km above right :(.
Saw some on the road already. Black / Grey / White..:)

Just clock 1K and change to Syn Oil.

FC for City & Highway is about 18 km/l.

18km/l is good enough. Hope after you change to Sync oil will be better. I intend to change when reach 10,000km. Sometimes don't use ECON mode, especially on highway. Just use ECON mode when start stop environment. I found we can get better FC. Last tank i get 22km/l. Next tank will try fully without ECON, then see how:) But overall, now monthly I safe around 180 dolar :) Insight is worth it. Happy with it.

I get mine 67k , but that was COE 9000 period. Now should be around 73k to 74K. Get it from SG vehicles. SG vehicles is the first one who bring Insight into Sing. Jwang27 get it from Hybrid Motor, maybe can check with him how much he get. If I'm not wrong, Civic Hybrid cost around 90k. Too expensive.

If you have more budget, go for Toyota Prius 2009, SG vehicles selling entry model around 85k. BM selling 94k. Slightly better FC, space and engine.

At first, I was thinking to get Toyota P 2009. But it cost 18k more than Insight, end up go for Insight :). 67k, really value for money. If you compare with Pruis, I feel they are not at the same group. One high-end hybrid, and Insight more pratical hybrid. Good enough for daily use.

COE is going up during this period... you might want to wait for the dip.

The Insight is very quite and fuel efficient! :D

Many of the car accessories installer had commented that the Insight engine is very quite.

Really value for $$$ (mine cost $70k - COE 13K)

Mine purple Insight came with the Modulo body kit (got it "free" during the first launch @ Hybrid motor). 8)
