Re: PRNDL - Anyone use L?

Checked with Volt advisor who suggested I use the lower "gear". Does anybody know if this is really a gear....how it works. Based on the results, it just seems like a software package with a new balance between disc brakes and regenerative. On higher speeds, I use cruise control which doe...

Re: vin #

the last six digits are 101069 and it doesn't make sense to me that mine was the hundred and one thousandth car produced. The last 5 digits are the VIN sequence so your car was the 1069th car off the line. Since you just recently got the car I assume it is a 2012 model year. The model year indicati...

Re: First San Francisco Bay Area Volt Gathering!

I can do June 4. That's also the monthly meeting day for the Golden Gate Electric Auto Association in SF but I'm probably the only person here who has been going to their meetings. I also go to the Silicon Valley EAA meetings on the 3rd Saturday of the month which would be June 18. So, June 11 works...

Excellent. Thanks for posting the image of your bill. It's interesting to see the different utility billing schemes.

Re: 1st Time Car Engine Came On

Heard and felt my gas engine for the 1st time since owning my Volt. It was at the request of the car for Engine Maint. My question is how often does this happen? I haven't had this happen myself yet, but the manual says it will happen if the engine has not run in about 6 weeks. It keeps the engine ...

Re: EV Charging and PG&E. Are they helping or hurting?

Check out Patrick's new article on his first PG&E bill under the E-9A rate. I commented there that he saved about $.76 by switching to E-9 even after including the extra 120-130 kWh spent charging his car. I'm hoping for a similar result by using the delay setting on my dishwasher so it runs aft...

Re: Offgassing

My Volt had a bit of a strong new car smell to it for the first 2-3 weeks. I was expecting that. It seems to have gotten a lot better in the last few days.

Re: Got my Volt!

Congrats on getting your Volt! I know you have talked about wanting to modify the grey "cladding" that runs under the doors along the side of the car. I believe that it might be possible to remove it. I assume it will be painted the body color but it might have some mounting holes for some...
