127 MPG: This Volt Story Must Be Told

From: 127 MPG: This Volt Story Must Be Told | Car News Blog at Motor Trend

Two guys at Motor Trend magazine took a Chevy Volt and drove it like the hammers of hell.

That is, exactly the wrong way to drive a car that is designed for mileage efficiency.

Not only did they drive it the wrong way, but they got 127 MPG out of it. They used a little over two gallons of fuel to cover 299 miles.

Let’s try this again: the Volt, not driven like a granny, can cover 299 miles with a little over two gallons of fuel. The article points out that many current cars can’t cover that distance ON A FULL TANK OF GAS.

Too bad it is so damn expensive and Chevy didn’t think of selling a stripped-down version.
