I've wanted to start this thread for a while but wasn't sure how to organize it and didn't have all the links yet. I think it could include various calculators such as comparisons, lease, MPGe, etc. Feel free to give me links or other ideas. I'll keep the first few post for future use. (Yes, for the record I realize buying a new car is not a good investment and this car is "expensive" but only compared to a much less featured economy car. I don't lease and I plan on keeping this purchased car for well over 10 years).

I [Tom Dixon] have to admit it. I want everyone to dive a Volt. I want to evangelize the many benefits of the Volt and convince anyone thinking about buying a new car to test drive a Volt. So, I decided to try to create something that would help me show people the positive economic and environmental benefits of driving a Volt, and... after weeks of working on it, last night I finished writing an application to compare any 2012 car against the Chevy Volt for fuel cost and CO2 emissions
