    240V charging in the Volt is approximately 1/5C. So, that redefines slowly for you.
    120V is about 1/12C.

    1C used to be the standard charging rate for early LiPo batteries. Now RC hobbyists are...

    Reprogramming sounds like it reset your driving history. Your range estimate is just that. Do you drive it down to fully use the battery range...

    Looks nice. Was there a fee for those? I have heard that it isn't free. (It's a Disney World...after all) Also, for a lot the size of this one, they should really do more. Dozens of plugs at...

    Got the letter for my 2011 Volt. Must be across most models?
    I put the letter in a folder for safe keeping. No problem with steering but the letter (which did look a bit like Spam) says they say...

    41 psi would be good for tire pressure, and ac can lower range at least 5km.

    The petrol comment in your OP doesn't make sense. It would lower your lifetime mpg unless you are doing s lot of...

    Remove the gas tank would be one way.

    Consider going to California and buying a Chevy Spark EV. In Korea they sell a BEV version of the Cruze.

    Would you consider the VW e-Golf?

    I don't know why you got rid of it, but I am one who keeps cars a long time. Bought my 2011 Volt in mid 2012. Probably will trade up in 2017-2018 or later. My wife may do something in mid 2016...

    Tesla stores also have HPWC. The one near me keeps cars in front of them all day Sunday, when they are closed. Not convenient for people coming through the area wanting a charge. So, they seem to...

    Honestly, I don't see $2.00 gas coming. $2.40 maybe. This oil thing is more geo-political rather than true glut. We are already drawing down oil from amount of oil we have in tanks. The weekly...

    I voted 6.6 but have little use for it. We re missing the point of a Volt. Sure, we would like faster charging, we do not need it. It works great for a commuter who can charge overnight and...

    Not sure how many Volt owners are GM stock holders.
    But I do believe that a high number of Tesla Model S owners are TSLA stock holders. Due to stock valuation impact, there is no way they would...

    If staying with 3,6kw lowers the car price by say $500 or so, then great. But make it a $500 6.6kw upgrade for those who want it.

    While my wife does not need a CUV, a 2016 Volt would do just fine, she does have a CR-V. On lease. Thru mid 2016. I do want to get a plug in at that time and hope GM can throw us a Voltec bone in...
