At last I have achieved 100 MPGe with my 2017 Gold River Volt. And that included 1,347 miles driven in gasoline and yet, I was able to make the grade for 100 MPGe club!

After about 8 months, the Volt has been driven for a total of 23,132 miles with 21,705 miles powered by wall electricity and 1,347 miles by gasoline. Achieving a lifetime of 44 MPGcs, 100 MPGe and 753 mpg.

My record for a full trip discharge was 174 MPGe. I've average about 135 MPGe last week, and for the past three months, averaged about 125 MPGe. The lifetime MPGe only got to 100 MPGe this week as it is very challenging to boost it past 100 MPGe after burning gas for 1,347 miles during the early part of ownership.

The only maintenance are tire rotations. No issues at all so far! Brake pads don't wear out, oil changes are once every two years. Indeed it's the best electric hybrid car of the US! I may have to drain the stale dated gas after 5 more months as it is still full since my last purchase. No range anxiety at all and yet 99% of my trips are electric!

One of the most efficient cars I have ever driven!

Ranked #7 amongst the VoltStats Hall Of Famers.

My average for the last 30 days is 105mpe on my Gen 1. Would be even easier with Gen 2.
My average for the last 3 months have been 125 MPGe. Last Week, I averaged 135 MPGe, thanks to the warming weather.

The big challenge is, can you get over 100 MPGe after burning gasoline for 1,347 miles?

The only thing that isn't accurate with VoltStats and that Mike has told us is the MPGe calculations. Even if I achieved 174 MPGe with my volt on 80+ mile trip, it would only be calculated as MPGe of 106 in VoltStats. The other data are spot on.
