 "I'm sure I can get a regular Ford Mustang
  to give me higher gas mileage [than a Honda
  Insight] with the more accurate wide-band
  O2 sensors.'

And I'll bet not.

Because 1) *you're* not incorporating regenerative braking
and recovering otherwise waste energy and 2) your power
plant's efficiency will be a lot less given any particular
cruise speed ... the Insight's electric motor *augments*
the gasoline engine when required to get up to
speed/climbing small hills ...
