While I applaud your achievement, it might be a good idea to point out (especially to new Volt owners) that you have not gained any additional electric miles, in the conventional sense of the term (miles traveled without burning gasoline). What you have done is judiciously used Mountain Mode and rest stops, where you power off and power back on in Normal mode, to burn as little gas as possible. Any "extra" EV miles that the car records is the result of a glitch in the Volt's mileage counting process, in which, after you turn off the car and turn it back on, it "forgets" that the available electric charge was gas-generated. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but there have been lots of threads that document this process, with people thinking that they're getting "free" electric miles when, in fact, they are just gaming the system.
