My sister bought a Volt in November and has driven 1100 miles on 3.4 gallons of gasoline. She has averaged more than 320 miles per gallon.
The Volt is primarily used to drive 25 miles to work, where she charges it, and 25 miles back home. It is also perfect for local errands, while maintaining the flexibility for long trips.
Public charging stations would add to the flexibility of the vehicle.
Driving 1100 miles on 3.4 gallons saved her money, prevented pollution, and strongly tells Iran and the other oil blackmailers to shove it.
Electric vehicles, CNG vehicles, and biofueled vehicles all run well, cheaply, cleanly, and freely. Fueled by America, they are the ayatollahs nightmare.
