Re: Actual Kwh to charge the Volt

As of three days ago, I am a new Volt owner. After my initial daily driving , I can see from my normal commute I will not need to use any gas. However, living in California with PG&E, my cost of electricity is 3x the 12 cents per Kwh national average that GM touts in their advertising. So at th...

I had at least a dozen to choose from at just one dealer on June 30th! All dealers I contacted (5) seemed to be fully stoc...
