In the winter maybe, but I was beating EPA on the first drive with the volt, EPA figures climate control stock air pressure, rapid stops with less regen, etc.

Never had a car so easy to hypermile.

Just for comparison, when I get 65 miles ev I usually get 52mpg gas, battery is 10.5kw

Run your math and tell me what my MPGe is vrs Mpg and run a cost per mile comparison. I think you will be surprised.
