  3. Oil Life at 97% from 378 EV only miles?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I noticed my "Oil Life" percentage going down (OnStar RemoteLink app) from driving purely EV miles since I got the car. Is this something I should expect when driving EV only miles or is it something I should mention to the service department? The rate of decrease implies 12,600 miles to 0%...

  8. Are Magnetic Oil Drain Plugs Helpful for Long Engine Life

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)

    It's been several years now converting my home to a net-zero solar home to the point of having a surplus of electricity on an annual basis to power my Volt. I should get about 5,000 miles of electric fuel each year with this annual surplus. It's hard to believe I'll actually have the Volt this...
