I finally got to drive my 2014 Volt in electric mode all day. I used 7 kw to go 30 km. (as an aside, I calculated that it cost me 70 cents for my day :) )The display shows 75 percent efficiency. My first drive of the day I got up to 89 percent but it dropped to 75 percent for the rest of the day. I mostly drive around my small city. I also do a lot of short drives. Is that why I cant seem to do much better than that?

I think I did about 4. something to do about the same. It starts off pretty good loosing about 2 Km. to go the 8 Km into town (rural road at 60 Km. speed limit). Next week when I go to Nanaimo, I'm going to use EV so it turns on the ICE to see what my range is and let it stretch it's legs. I'll free charge there for the off highway part of the trip back.
