I own a Honda Insight. Lifetime average: 66 MPG. I routinely get 75 MPG on freeway commutes, 80 MPG every once in a while.

I read a story about a guy who drove around the British island in an Insight and averaged somewhere in the 110 MPG ballpark (setting a record).

The xprize should be a little more far-reaching.
