    Didn't realize that when I wrote the first reponse. Silly me.

    I'm wondering if Voltec 1.0 is more efficient for larger batteries and smaller engines while Voltec 2.0 is more efficient for smaller...

    WOW Ron, just WOW. That sounds like it had the possibility of some very serious injuries, at the least. Glad he is OK. Even without any obvious injuries and even without scratches, they'll probably...

    Wow. That's a heap of misfortune. Sorry you have to deal with it.

    The good thing is that so far there are no injuries.

    Can't say it's the Volt with a straight face. It's kinda cute but I'm...

    The key factor is that in CA you pay and get paid at the same rates. So if the peak rate is $.42/kWh you get paid that amount for any excess production.

    I had the option of either having a...

    Thanks for the tip! I hope it's as easy as a software update. I do note that the bulletin indicates it's for cars made before February and my car was delivered in April. Also my center stack goes...

    Boy, I'd think E6 would be a bad deal. You can easily end up paying $.30/kWh during off peak charging times at all times of the year. With EV-A the highest rate would be $.10/kWh. Given that the OP...

    The trick is to sell high and buy low, which suggest a plan like EV-A (single meter, non-tiered rate, time of day pricing) would be the best. If you have an idea what your use is now this shouldn't...

    I'm impressed with the dealer. When I called and told the Service Manger what the logic lock had returned his response was "Oh No". IOW he understood immediately that this was going to be a problem....

    That's interesting. That would be a little unusual where I am and there are EVs all over the place. Cool.

    Didn't know that. Pretty cool. Homing pigeon like. It would be great if you could program children and pets with this. Also some people who wander way off topic at meetings!

    I don't think you have enough categories. For example, a BMW 5 series or an MB E series is not a sports car. What category would you use for these?

    I'd assume it got all the C.U.E. updates when they had it the last time but I can check. Very funny about the depreciation. However, you can drive it so long as you don't need the backup camera for...

    Locked Up ELR Part Deux

    Haven't driven the ELR very much. Maybe less than twenty miles other than to and from the dealer. Today my wife moved it from the garage because the plumber was coming over to look at the sewer line...

    Paradise Cadillac and Chevrolet in Temecula. They sell a lot of Volts and their service department is fantastic. But probably too far to go if you're in San Diego unless you had a problem you thought...

    No argument about that.

    You have actual live people read the meter? How quaint!

    Kidding aside, I'd assume they would have moved to automatic reading. We're not cutting edge where I am but we...

    I used to pay attention to CR until I realized that the more I knew about a product the less sense CR's ratings made. At that point I just stopped paying attention. Good bless them. They doubtless...

    +1. That's a great question. The additional mass would make a difference for city driving since a big loss there is rolling resistance, and rolling resistance is directly proportional to mass. At...

    Hard for me to get excited about this non-plug-in 0 mile hybrid, but no doubt it's important and exciting for GM. At 45 MPG, this suggests GM is on track to meet the ever increasing CARB and CAFE...
