The Volt like all Chevy cars is VERY affected by rather small temperature changes.

Folks in downright hot areas, especially at elevation tend to get the optimal gas mpgs from a Volt, those of us in temperature or cool areas get much lower MPGs.

My highest FE was during 90F weather.

Which means a WAI is needed on the Volt

And yes my Insight looses much less FE in the cold than the Volt or even my Cobalt, itís a damn shame that Chevy, dodge and Ford ignore cold weather operation
