I leave my Volt plugged in when not in use. Does anyone know about how much energy is being used AFTER my Volt is fully charged, but being left plugged in? I assume this might vary some depending upon the temp inside my garage, but assuming the temp is about 70 degrees most of the time, what do you think? Seems like when someone asks me what it really costs to run my car on electric only I would need to account for any power consumption by the car while being plugged in.
I can't recall any longer -- measured a long time ago -- but it's minimal. As in really minimal. Like a few watts minimal. Basically to small to account for or small enough to ignore, whatever way you'd like to look at it.
