I know there have been lots of other road trip reports, but figured it didn't hurt to add to the data...
Over the past week, we've driven from San Francisco to Scottsdale AZ via Palm Springs. We had a full charge when we left home, but we haven't been able to charge since then due to LACK OF PLUGS anywhere we stay. What's up with that?
So far, we've driven 1,000 miles on this roadtrip and the MPG for the trip is 39. We've been driving between 75 and 80 MPH most of the time. We have not used mountain mode on this trip. The temperature has been in the low and mid 60s. The car performs flawlessly.
We have had the car for 8 months now and, before this trip, we had only used about 9 gallons of gas (the ones the dealer gave us!). I have to tell you that while I love the freedom the Volt gives us to drive anywhere we want without fear of running out of power, I REALLY HATE USING GAS NOW. I never thought this feeling would be so strong, but there it is. And I guess that's a good thing. I just wish the lifetime stats compiled by the car would let us edit out the road trips as I'll never get my 250+ back now.
