On July 15, we have officially owned our 2013 Cyber Grey Volt for two months. I know this has been said many times on the forum, but I have to say it again, WE LOVE THIS CAR. According to Volt Stats, we have saved 193 gallons of gas as of yesterday. Since we took delivery, we only used gas for our trip to visit the Volt factory in Detroit. We usually drive about 35-55 miles a day.
We did add a GE Watt Station to our garage for inter-day charging after work or running errands during the weekend. This allowed us to use the car one day up to 79 miles totally EV. This may sound strange, but we moved the thermostat up 2 degrees and changed all our light bulbs in the house to LED to offset the extra electricity used to power the Volt. According to Duke Energy, we used 45 kWh less electricity this July than last July even with the car charging everyday. We should see greater saving next month because the lights bulbs just got swapped yesterday.
GM should market the hell out of this car. It is totally awesome and fun to drive... Sorry to rant!
