  1. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I want to get some idea of how many miles I've driven under ICE power. I am imagining some algeba that involves equations that takes into account X number of ICE miles and Y number of electric miles to result in a melded MPG figure that matches my car's readout. The problem is that I don't...
  2. ? Buying, Selling, Tax Credit, Fees - Chevy Volt
    I would like to buy this 2017 Volt, but when I test drove it the screen below seemed odd to me. Should I see much better MPG? According to the dealer, the battery was replaced in December and it hasn't been driven much since then. Energy Usage since last full charge left side of screen...
  3. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    I was charging my car at a level 2 charger and when i was ready to leave I unpluged the charger and started up my car. I went to the enegy usage screen because i didn't think it was completely recharged and i noticed the Mpg and MPGe stats disappeared from the Energy Usage Screen on my 2016...
  4. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 2 Chevy Volt
    Greetings! Is there a way to adjust the values used to calculate the MPGe figures displayed in the efficiency screens of the 2017 Volt? (such as cost of kwh and gallon of gas) Thanks.
  5. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    Not sure if anyone has started a thread like this, but thought I would share my 126.5MPG path from Mammoth Lakes, CA to Fresno over highway 120 in Yosemite, then on highway 41 to Fresno and ending on Highway 99 South. We started out leaving Mammoth Lakes not wanting to buy gas at the outrageous...
  6. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Spark EV
    Articles on the internet make it clear that in 2015, Chevy modified the Spark EV to put higher RPMs on the engine (drive ratio changed from 3.17 in 2014 to 3.87 in 2015 and 2016) and boost the efficiency at lower (city driving) speeds, allowing Chevy to reduce the battery capacity by 10% and...

    Quick web-based Energy/Cost calculator I wanted a quick MPGe calculator that I could plug my "current charge" numbers from the Volt. I'm not sure if something like this already exists, but I could not find one with a quick check of the Google, so I made one myself. It works on mobile browsers...

  9. Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Allow the driver to enter electric price and gas price and calculate an effective MPG. It is not realistic to ignore the cost of electricity.
  10. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi, Just wondering if others are having problems with the myvolt website displaying the Lifetime KWH/100 miles and MPGe numbers. It displays for the last 30 days but not lifetime. I've owned the car for about a month and half now and thought it would start showing after the first month.
  11. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm really curious how the heck anyone gets 50-60 miles on one charge as I've read on this forum. I got my Volt on Sunday, it was a factory car with 950 miles already on the car. Every morning this week I have gotten in the car fully charged showing 32 miles on the charge... I have kept the...
  12. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    First, is miles per KWH basically the same thing as MPGe but just scaled up to a gallon? Gallon is about 33 KWH so adding .5 KWH to the 16 KWH battery by changing the chemistry does this? Layman's response if possible.... I thought the weight of the car was the biggest factor. That's why the...
  13. Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    The Chevrolet Volt has been generally well received, and the idea of a range-extending gasoline engine paired with electric power is not a difficult one for many people to comprehend. It has been said, however, that not all people "get" the car's full value. So, in the face of...
