I'm loving the car so far. My normal driving is always within the 53 mile battery range. I added an adapter to the included charger for 240V so have quicker charging. I converted my PG&E rate plan from E to EV so have time of day billing rather than tiered which should reduce my bill substantially based on the past year's usage.

My last vehicle was a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe so I double my gas mileage if I were to just use the ICE but shouldn't be using any gas unless I go on a trip. The Santa Fe was easier to get in and out of but that's probably the only thing I miss about it at this point. It was a dependable vehicle for 12 years though.

Right now the plan is to keep the Volt for 5 years and reevaluate car technology at that time unless I end up moving or something.

Welcome aboard. You sure are executing a sound game plan. This is a perfect example of how to buy and operate a new Volt.

Not much else I can add but to remind you to consider joining VoltStats.net and monitor and keep your tire PSI at least "2 over" the recommended.

Here's to miles of EV smiles.
