  1. 75,000 Miles On One Tank of Gasoline

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Actually about 1/2 a tank worth. This is from June 9, 2013 through last Sunday. I realized a day late that I actually hit the mark. Missed the opportunity to get a pic of the trip odometer as I reset it also on June 9th. So I roughly used 4.3 gallons to drive 75,000 miles. Works out to...
  2. PLUG1N Reaches 80,000 Miles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Today PLUG1N reached 80,000 total miles with 16.7 gallons burned. 80,000 EV miles will have to wait until Sunday since I have 139 gas miles. Also with 80,000 miles the federal emissions warranty expires. So with 80,000 miles my electrical costs have been $1,968 based on $0.0246 / mile. Gas...

    Congratulations to Erick Belmer for reaching this amazing milestone. I just have to say, I'm glad I don't have his commute!
  4. 3 Year Anniversary for my Volt

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Today is the 3 year anniversary for when I picked up PLUG1N. Hard to believe 3 years ago I surprised my family with my Volt. Hands down, this is the best car I have ever owned. 63,000 EV miles and it has been virtually problem free. The honeymoon never ended and I still love driving my Volt...
  5. Reached 60,000 EV miles in my 2012 Volt

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Last night I reached 60,000 EV miles. I reached the 60,000 total miles a few days earlier. So how is my range after 60,000 EV miles in less than 3 years, 1053 days to be exact. Maybe this picture can answer that question. The biggest hit on my range was going to new or let's say newer...
  6. 50,000 EV Miles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Well, it took a long time since I hit 50,000 total miles until I reached 50,000 EV miles. But 1.5 days later I managed the long slog of putting another 140 miles on the odometer. So, my VOLTEC warranty is now (actually 2 days ago) officially 50% over, or 50% yet to go. I guess it depends if...
  7. Milestone of 10,000 Electric Miles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Today, I reached the milestone of driving 10,000 electric, gas-free miles in my Volt. I haven't been to a gas station since December 11 of 2012 and have been averaging 611 miles-per-gallon (yes, that's six-hundred-eleven). Today was also the day that the royal baby was named, "George...

  9. 5,000 EV Mile Milestone

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Woo-hoo! I surpassed 5,000 miles this week on pure electricity. 5,000 miles using ZERO gallons of gas! :D For the rare times when I do use the gas generator to propel my car, I'm averaging over 330 miles per gallon (MPG). I got my 2013 Volt back in mid-September and am averaging about 90% EV...
