So ass we know the gen 1 battery pack for 2014 has I believe a 10.7 usable size of the batter to get the 38 miles at least rated. So today in NY its been oh about 10 degrees all day. I was able to get 24miles out of what the monitor showed 11.3kwh. How can this be? Now my 4yr old volt has been averaging 10.3 for the last few seasons which is expected after being 4 years old so degradation is great. But how is it possible to get 11.3 on such a cold day? Note I did preheat the volt for one iteration of 10 minutes or cycle. Is it possible the 11.3kwh includes the extra amountt consumed while plugged in and preheating/pre conditioning?

I think the less trustworthy numbers are miles on gas and electric as those get accounted strangely in ERDTT mode in my 2012, especially if I put the car on "Fan only" climate with very cold temps (like single digits F or less). This is why I think the OP was credited with using some electricity that was recharged before he left, but not recharged all the way to reset the counter.
Remember the 2011 and 2012 account for gas and electric miles differently from the rest of the Gen 1 line. Our experiences are not going to be seen by a 2014. We can, for example, creatively use Mountain Mode to trade poor MPG on the gas miles to get 100+ EV miles clocked on a single long drive without turning the car off.
