Ran my volt first full week charging at home and at work. 40 miles each way. Morning temps in the 40's. Gas used 3.1 gallons, charging at home 7.00, work 5.00. When I work it out the cost per mile .055, Amazing. I am looking forward to go even lower as temps get higher and I don't have to use the heater in the morning.
I also took a trip over 200 miles and reset the trip odometer to find out what the MPG on just gas is. For 209 miles I used 5.1 gallons, indicated 40.7. Anyway you slice it the car is just fantastic on energy cost.
I have two questions though. My Volt had no cover for the cargo floor. My dealer claims that none of the Volts at there dealership have them. Mine is a 2011 and was their demonstrator. It is minor but cannot find any other cover aftermarket. Did 2011 come with the cover as standard? If it did, who do i have to contact to get one? No way to store anything in it without everybody just looking in.
How do I tell when my Volt was made, from the vin number? It would sure help me to determine what fixes it may need, as i see other owners report on there Volts.
