Re: Volt hypermilling

Hi Wittesvolt

Thanks for sharing your impressive mileage log data.
Judging by that you seem to be in the sweet spot for the volt, nearly all EV miles.
Trip of 35m means never needing to use the engine?
Low speed of 37mph means you are probably already close the most efficient for aerodynamics and rolling resistance losses.
1030 mpg for 1550miles,1.5gal and 413kWh, combined MPGe is 110-112 (GGE 33.7kWh/gallon)

Look forward to following your progress
Thanks
Andrew
