Thank you. But I do not want to burn gas. I want to use my battery. I can still use it for short runs and keep charging. But sad that Chevy does not replace battery so I could use for another 8 - 9 years. Again, thank you all for your assistance.Did you perform the test without A/C or fans running? We are interested in how much energy the battery can provide to propel the car.
If your Volt is running well but you are not getting the range you once got, I wouldn’t worry too much. You still have a good car. As long as the aging battery cells are still properly balancing, you will be able to drive the car for a long time. Your ICE generator will kick in sooner and you will burn gas to continue generating electricity to get you to your destination.
I look in the mirror and see that I don’t look like I did 8 years ago, but I’m still waking up each morning and getting out of bed, so I’m satisfied 8^)
