    Had the Propulsion recall and the front camera freezing up issue recall as well completed on our 2016 Volt on Thursday 012617. Yesterday I took if for a drive. Early morning I went to the dentist on electric, 23 mile, drive as normal. Went home charged up fully. Went fishing for steelhead down the coast via Highway 101 to Tillamook Oregon. No luck, but good exercise. Returned home of course at sea level where I left. Total miles for the day 148, 62.5 on the gas engine. Gas used, 1.16 gal. MPG on gas 53.87. Weather was 49-57 degrees, warmest its been all month, and dry roads as well, no rain.

    Highway driving through several small towns along the way, speeds varied from 25 -35 through towns and up to 60 mph on the highway. Elevation varied from sea level at our house to 500 feet or so. I was alone in the car with all my gear, ice box etc.

    I can't say for sure but the update may have increased the mpg on the gas engine. Also the trip down to the river where I fished was accomplished with 63.4 miles on electric that ended well above sea level as well.

    So this sure looks promising. Considering winter blended gas with 10% ethanol, 87 regular Costco gas, as well. Gas mpg places this in the Prius range as well. Infact the last fill up on our 2010 Prius was about 45 mpg. Our Prius is really affected by winter temps obviously more so than the Volt. Summer the Prius is 55+ mpg on gas.

    Maybe it just me but the last time I obtained gas mpg in our Volt like this was in the summer, with 70+ temps, summer formulated gas,and on highway 101 with so many tourist speeds on the highway averaged 40-50 mph when out of the local towns heavy traffic.

    Probably this trip in the summer electric range would have been 70 miles and pushing 60 mpg on gas.

    I believe some forum members also have noticed an increase in mpg when on gas engine propulsion....
