I always thought this was a great true story from a gm-volt member:

At the time of this anecdote, I had the car for a year and a half and had just under 15 000 miles on the car. At this point I had been to the gas station once to gas up (took it home new from the dealer with a full tank).

The last time I put gas into my Volt was March of this year; I put in 20$ of the smelly stuff. We were coming off my a painful renovation (I know, aren't they all?). My wife and I were joking about how the kids knew all about Lowe's and Home Depot and drywall and insulation and all that stuff as we were on our way back from my 8 year old daughter's ballet lesson, wife and 4 year old son in tow. I mutter to my wife that I was going to pull into the happy, smiley Esso Station (Exxon in the U.S.).

I pull in and stop the vehicle and proceed to unlatch my seatbelt, at which point my 4 year old, as he looked around quite confused, asked me, "Daddy, what is this store. What do they sell here?"

My wife and I looked at each other and shared a look of joy and bewilderment. There was a long pause during which I debated, "Do I answer this one, or do I sweep it under the rug?" Before I could figure it out, my eight year old goes on to explain to him that the Volt runs mostly on electricity but needs gas once in a while.
