What temperature leads to best mileage?

I think it is between 60-70 degrees. My range on battery this week was close to 48 the whole distance to work while driving in L?

Re: New Thought for Driving In Low

Looks pretty cool. I'll sign up to be a beta tester. What's the maximum braking strength? Can this regen braking bring the car to a complete stop? It should analyze how you drive and recommend strength levels. Why did they call it a paddle? That's such a low tech misnomer. Their almost there. Just n...

New Thought for Driving In Low

Well, I've got an idea that can make the next Volt better. How about a finger control on the steering wheel to put the car in Low? Place it right next to the volume button. My theory is that you should be driving in L mode in traffic under 30 miles per hour to be most efficient. In LA where I drive ...

Re: PURCHASE / LEASE COSTS

Not sure why your monthly lease is so high. I pay $260 per month on 3 year lease which started in Oct 2012 for 2013 Volt. I have rear view camera, heated seats, and onstar. Dealer gave me $2000 off price. I put down $3000. I think the car sticker was $43k. Dealer took $7500 credit. They added that t...

Volt reflections on 100 days of use

Just thought I would reflect on my first 100 days and share what I like about my Volt and some of the quirky things I've noticed. Overall, I totally love driving the car. Each time I get in I feel the closest to being in KIT the car from knight rider. If only the proximity sensors activated human li...

Blink charger. Loud thump when starting charge.

Is it normal for the blink charger to make a loud thump when it starts charging my volt?

It is so loud we can feel it in my living room when watching tv.

Thanks

Regular unleaded gas, is it ok?

Put unleaded reg in my volt bar accident. Is it going to damage my generator?

Re: Driving in low gear

I like how low slows me down and I don't have to move my foot much. It's funny how I tend to automatically lift my foot now and slow myself at the right moment. I don't know though about the battery mileage because I ran the whole battery down today and my total miles driven on the battery was 39. A...

Driving in low gear

Today I drove mostly in low gear because my top speed was never more than 30 mph. I noticed that in my normal 18 mile commute I used up approximately 14 miles worth of battery. So my question is what is the optimal speed to be shifting on? If I shift at 40 mph to low gear will this damage the gear? ...
