A tale of two new Volts (interesting stats)
I took delivery of my 2nd Volt yesterday. It was driven from a dealership >150 miles away so it came with 210 miles on it. I was comparing the initial stats from the download on Volt-stats.net compared to the other Volt we took delivery a month ago and it is kind of interesting.
Volt 1 (June 29)
EV Miles: 42.1
CS Miles: 41.6
Oil Life: 98.3
Volt 2 (July 31)
EV Miles: 25.9
CS Miles: 184.3
Oil Life: 98.8
What I found interesting is that the Lifetime economy is almost exactly the same where one car has 50/50 EV/CS and the other is only 14% EV. Also, the oil life on the car with less miles is lower.
That seems to imply that the lower mileage car got really bad economy on gas before we took delivery. My theory is that it may have sat idling for a long time? Any other theories?
I'm not complaining about anything, just thought it was interesting that they both started out with the same economy with such different backgrounds.
