  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. 4 years, sans my Volt's Range Extender

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Yesterday marked 4 consecutive years of driving my Volt without engaging the range extender for propulsion. Last time while driving, I switched over to my ICE was May 23, 2012. Back then I had 9,114 EV miles and 139 gas miles. Today I have 96,774 EV miles and still 139 gas miles. That works...
  3. Ultimate 100% EV Road trip in a Volt for NDEW

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I decided to push my luck and try to go from Northern Virginia to the NDEW event in Kennett Square, PA. This is a distance of around 150 miles. So, can I do it in my Volt without using that range extender thingy I am told the Volt has? Well, of course I could. Here is the net result. By...
  4. 3 Consecutive Years Without Using My ICE For Propulsion.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Well, I made it. 3 years without exceeding the range in my Volt. Hard part were the three winters, summer time is a piece of cake. Last time my range extender kicked in was May 23, 2012. Back then I had 9,272 miles on my odometer with 139 gas miles. As of yesterday, I has 74,046 miles and...
  5. My VoltStats Streak of Miles Without Gas Ended at 49,737 miles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    It did not end because I ran out if range and switched to CS mode, nor because of a mechanical issue. My 862 consecutive days with 0.0 gas miles ended because of a body shop. Somehow they managed to put 0.13 gas miles on my Volt. The horror! Not sure how they did it as I left it with an 85%...

  7. 81.8 Miles On A Single Charge / No Elevation Change

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I had been planning this for weeks. Finally had a warm day, no rain, and no other activities to get in the way. Temperature was perfect. Started out 89F, cooled down to 80F by the end of the drive. Before I started, I inflated my tires to 60 PSI, from their usual 52 PSI. I only stopped once...
  8. VoltStats - 2 Years Driving Without Gas

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Well, with this brutal winter, I really did not think I was going to make it another whole year. I had a couple of really, really close calls, but I was able to make it to the easy times of warmer weather. My streak really goes back to 2/11/12 but this did not show up on VoltStats due to the...
  9. My Uber Streak Of Miles With Gas Has Reached 40,000 Miles

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    My Uber Streak Of Miles Without Gas Has Reached 40,000 Miles My VoltStats streak of miles without gas began on May 23, 2012. That was the last time I exceeded my range. I just missed getting home and my Volt switched to gas right before I entered my neighborhood. I was not really upset as...
  10. It's back! (my take)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Well, I have a different appreciation for the final arrival of spring. My Volt is loving the warmer weather today. Temperature was 60F for my AM commute. Drove 19.1 miles and still had 35 miles remaining. I used 3.5 kWh to get in. This works out to a 54 mile range and 5.46 miles / kWh. Tires...
  11. Congratulations to Rocky Volt, new VoltStats leader for Miles Per Tank of Gas

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Not sure how long I've held the top spot, probably at least since January, 2013. VoltStats does not show a historical view of the achievements. My streak ended last June when I burned off my entire tank due to fuel maintenance and I ended at 28,299 miles. Looks like I'll have to live with...
