You are claiming you got 90 miles from a full battery on one trip and 199 miles from a full battery on a second trip?I've had back to back 90-199 miles per full charge and yet my EV Range from the GOM never exceeds 86 miles after full charging that follows. Has anyone here started out with an EV Range of more than 86 miles?
You are personally insulting me, for trying to push my Volt beyond its limits. This is not acceptable. I feel insulted by this response. Please look at my other threads that I have posted.This thread started by "JoeReal" smells of BS and is bordering on trolling or at least trying to get a rise out of the less experienced or uneducated Volt owners.
It is impossible, with the stock HV battery in a Gen 2 Volt to get that number of miles unless you are driving some sort of "fixed" loop with no stopping, using cruise control and driving at well under standard speed limits, or driving downhill and charging at the bottom (or you have faulty software for your guessometer).
Please fully describe your problem or your style of driving so that new owners here will not be misled.
I have explained this one in some other threads on how to achieve what seems to be impossible. I demand apology from the insults hurled at me.I think there is more to the story that Joe has not divulged yet. Let's give him a chance to explain before name calling, etc.
Thanks Steverino. Truly it discourages someone from sharing if they start it out with BSing others... I've been one of the oldest members here in terms of joining, and don't deserve the improper insinuations. It isn't helpful in building up this wonderful community of EV and GM enthusiasts.I think there is more to the story that Joe has not divulged yet. Let's give him a chance to explain before name calling, etc.
I was asking if anyone else have exceeded the 86 mile EV Range displayed in their instrument panel at the start of the trip after a full charge.I'd like clarification for the questions I asked, Joe
I do not understand. Even your graphs show that it is impossible. I’m thoroughly confused unless you were driving 20 mph downhill for 25-30 miles.I have contributed several statistics here, like this one.
