I never carry my Level I EVSE in my Volt so I don't think about where it could be stored. In the Gen II Volt there is a storage compartment on the left side of hatch storage area for the EVSE. I use this space to store other car stuff.
Drive electrically and enjoy the difference!
As others have commented, I use EV in cities and Hold on the freeways. However, when going up & down hills & in CC, I use Low going down the hill as it maintains the speed I selected otherwise the speed increases, in hold in D, going down hill.

Edit: I see above where someone commented that you could use that method to save the extra bars of regen for use in non-highway driving where they are a bit more efficient. I concede that point, though it's a small benefit and I don't think it's worth playing these games (IMHO, others are free to disagree). Perhaps if I found myself in a scenario where I had only a few bars, a long descent, and knew I was going to be doing a ton of city driving w/o the opportunity to recharge... maybe I would do this. Not likely anywhere in my half of the country.

So how many actually tote along a spare? This is the first no spare without run flats but I cannot honestly remember the last time I had a flat except on my bike
LRR tires have thinner plies. A nail that would bent against a regular steel radial often will go into a LRR tire.
I put self-sealing tires on the 2017 and 2016. So far so good. We have had 4? flat tires in 4 years with 3 Volts. None in the pickups.

I just drove in hold mode and didn't bother looking for charge opportunities. I had too much else to do anyway.
