volt review pretty good

I was kind of disappointed that the ride-along engineering folks did not do a better job of insuring that the reviewers started their days with a full charge. I show 44 to 48 miles available in the morning when I start out, and have gone over 50 on several occasions. My friends that read these reviews ask me 'what good is 30 miles?' I had some practice in economical driving by driving a 71hp smart car for 3 years before getting my Volt in early April. I pay attention to road contours (one route to the fwy is uphill, one down...same fwy, 6 blocks further trip) and set cruise for 55-60 mph. I drive 30 miles to work (where I can't plug in) and 15 miles of the return trip before it switches over to gas. In the final 15 miles of my daily comute I show .3 gallons consumed...sounds like 45 mpg to me.
