I wish you had made a split at 40 miles so we could see what % of people here could run a Volt without gas

If it was one of us driving the Volt, somehow I think the range would be slightly extended

It's about 6 miles from my apartment to school, so that's 12 miles a day, and I make 2 trips twice a week, so I figure about 15 a day.

I've a 53 mile roundtrip commute. I don't have to do that every day due to my schedule but it averages out to about 3 times a week.

I'm going to have to copy your answer. For me it's 6.1 miles each way if I take the residential back roads and 12 mile if I take the interstate. So my commute varies from 12.4 - 24 miles.

I'm in the 0-10 group, but I really don't fit anywhere. I telecommute, only going into town for meetings (30+ mile RT) maybe once a week on average, and if the weather's nice I often bike that, so at a pinch I could handle working without a car. But my major car use is driving to various trailheads & ski places, which are often longer distance and usually involve several thousand feet elevation gain.

About 140 miles/day, 5 days a week. Obviously every little MPG helps!
