Just a trivia note here since I got to use the site vehicle scale last night :)

2013 Volt (OHM-RIDE)
Listed Base Weight : 3,781lb

True gross weight as I usually run including,
  • Full tank of gasoline (about 56lb)
  • Driver (Me) (260lb)
  • The misc tools, change of clothes, and such I always carry in a car (10lb)

My real-world operating total: 4,107lb as tested on the scale.

In case someone needed a real world comparison number.

What is "listed"? Do you mean "measured"? Are both your weight figures "measured"? (to me, "listed" means factory spec weight)

You are WAY overthinking things.

Dutch with the VOLT DIET asap, low calories low cabs + exercise, to reduce weight BMI (body mass index) to 25, normal 20 to 25, and you will have saved more weight then the a full gas tank plus spare tire...you will get 1-2 extra electric miles per charge !!! LOL

I heard that carbon fiber stickers reduce vehicle weight by 5% for each sticker.

The Volt is a strange car when it comes to weight. It a small car that you would expect to be light, but you can feel that extra weight when you drive it.

In the VOLT forum is always a nice and respectful sense of humor , almost like in small family. If we get out of order STEVERINO or WOT will get us on line !!!.
