Man Drives Chevy Volt 1000 Miles on 5 Gallons of Gas
A man, named Steve Prinsen, just posted his Chevy Volt's fuel economy achievement in Chevy Volt Owners public group on Facebook displaying Volt MPG on give gallons of gas. He drove 999.6 miles, using 4.9 gallons of gas. His effective MPG is 202 miles.
"Hi everyone, just hit my first 1000 miles in my 2014 Volt! Loving this car. Trying not to bug my ICE friends with these pics but I figured you guys would appreciate it," wrote Prinsen in the group.
He also says that when he got the car it had 10,500 miles on it and only about 60 of those 10,500 miles were electric. Oddly, whoever had the car, never seemed to have charged it. Apparently, this is typical of reports we hear about fleet vehicles. Since there are no incentive to charge, people of fleet vehicles mostly drive using gas and not charging their cars.
On the other hand, for those, who drive their Volts or plugin hybrids as their own vehicles, for them it almost becomes an obsession: one I am sure all electric car owners are familiar with by now.
What's the best MPG you have achieved with your Chevy Volt or plug in hybrid?
