Carlos: exactly... but there's so much more wrong with it too!

Battery charge time isn't trip time especially if you don't need to charge the battery to keep going- just drive, drive, drive, gas up, and drive some more, just like any other car.

Or, it appears Faux didn't include fueling time for the gasser.

The electricity AND gas prices are whacked.

IIRC the Volt's battery is good for much more than 25 miles... unless one is driving like a complete ass, and desperately trying to slant their story...

I'd like to know where the utilities vary the electric rate per kwh by season??? At $1.16 his vs $0.09 mine- a discrepancy of almost a factor of 13?!?- I wonder if that buffoon is as big a failure at reading as he is at driving and writing.
