Interested in those 4 numbers from your lifetime of the car. Thanks.

I know how you drive and how I drive are different. Our commute and driving conditions are different and we are in the opposite end of the two coasts.

Again, I am just asking what you are getting in electric miles and gas miles.

Correcting misinformation is being a hater?

Please review how the Volt works in hybrid mode. You lack the fundamental understanding of how a planetary great set works. If need to, check out how Prius works -- has better materials explaining it, to help you.

In hybrid mode, gas engine power is blended with the power from electric motor (MGb). That is the reason it has full power in hybrid mode. The battery power sags in either mode. The only difference is the power that gas engine fills in the hybrid mode.

I suggest you be more humble and stop trying to sound big and act macho.

Sure it does. When the clutch is engaged, it still goes through planetary gear set which requires electricity from MGb to have forward propulsion at the wheels.

You gave a BS non-sense figure with electric miles divided by gasoline gallons.

There are four basic numbers that anyone can derive everything from.

1) Total number of miles driven with plug electricity
2) Total kWh consumed from the wall (charging loss would be included)
3) Total number of miles driven with gasoline
4) Total gallons pumped in.

My latest figures.

1) 1,049 miles
2) 276 kWh
3) 1,566 miles
4) 29 gallons

Why don't you share your MPGe (electric mile) and MPG (gas miles) for how "fun" you drive?

Don't be so proud of your thick tires because a compact 4 seater weights more than a SUV - it needs to be. Volt is neither a sporty car by any mean, especially with the top speed of 100 mph.

I couldn't be any happier (and having fun) with 128 MPGe on electricity and 55 MPG on gas.

Per MotorTrend testing, Volt is 6.8 seconds slower to reach 100 mph in EV vs when it is in hybrid mode. It does not have full power in EV mode, just like any other plugin hybrids.

Just because it has different set of conditions does not make it an electric car. As long as it has two fuels on-board, it is a hybrid.
