I've monitored the VoltStats and OnStar connectivity, and then studied when VoltStats begins polling the data and planned for it. I was ready with a fully charged Volt on the highest elevation that I can find and started the drive right after the poll cut-off time. I drove level roads first to deplete the battery and went downhill for regen, then level road again, then downhill and repeat until battery is depleted using hypermiling driving the rest of the way to the next charging station. Then I charge at a station with 240 V level 2, only for 3.5 hours. If you wait for it to fill up, time would be wasted as the last kWH is the slowest. Then hypermile drive again. The last 5 hours, I used recharging while driving, aka, Mountain Mode, recharging and Normal mode cycles.

Yeah, I can't figure out why people love to climb Mt. Everest or drive the longest miles for longest hours using their Tesla either.
