Hello all !!
40 EV miles with a charge is too easy with the VOLT ... why not put the bar higher : 60 miles ??
I just made that distance yesterday: 60.6 miles !!
I just got my original VOLT ĢECOģ tires since I got my VOLT ... so I wanted to compare them with my winter tires (in Quebec, the earliest you can get your summer tires is march 15, and that's when I got them installed !!).
Here is the parameters:
1) Tires at 42-43 PSI.
2) Speed between 30-40 MPH
3) Flat road
4) Only 2 stops during the entire trip (and that included the 180° turn back home at mid trip)
5) Outside temperature between 10°C and 15°C during the trip
I missed the 100 KM mark by only 2.4 KM ...
But still ... 97,6 KM (60.6 miles) with only 10 KwH is something !!
For more info, please see my blog post (french) : http://roulezelectrique.com/?p=376
Please post your best score ... on flat surface and, of course, no mountain mode ...
