James I don't precondition the cab of my Volt, even when it's 30 below

I do precondition the battery before leaving so the battery heater is off while I am driving, takes under a nickle of juice to get the battery warm, my Volt maintains 50 miles EV down to about 10F, (assuming I don't have massive fog and freezing rain issues)
which is pretty good, below that it drops
