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.

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.
