Because of the GM patent is why the prius plug in only gets an 11 mile range and that’s blended.

That's funny .... I've never heard a Volt. Not even my own.
Too funny.
Your wife agrees.
It's crazy how quiet and efficient the Volt is.

I believe one of the most important things GM did was patent the Volt transmission. This prevented other makers from copying the technology.
The dolt doesn't understand what the Voltech system is. GM holds several patents on the Volt. The reason they are sharing it with Via Motors is a) Bob Lutz is the head guy over there b) they use GM trucks as their platform. Of course, the Cadillac ELR is a GM product.

I even mention how the brilliant engineers were able to figure out a way to connect the electric generator and the gas generator to the electric motor via clutches and a ring gear.

They did this so they wouldn't have to put a second gear ratio, which would have added weight and cost to the car. The 2 generators were already there.

Dolt doesn't know about the planetary. Prius has a planetary, but it is nowhere near the brilliant design of gm's. Thus, the patents.

Once again, no plug in series hybrids (mild or otherwise) before the Volt came along.

ps .... the hater is calling the kettle black again. Sheeeesh.

My mpg through April. 1,000+ mpg



And dolt, all those electric miles were paid by me. I leave the charging stations for the Leaf. They have range anxiety.

Also .... I can't help it if all the awesome music I go to see is within my Volt's range. That's the benefit of living the the bay area. Too much music, so little time to watch.

Also, when I do go on a longer trip, I trick my Volt into better mpg by putting it in mountain mode. It uses a little more gas, but I get about 15 miles electric free when I get to my destination.

I use .12 more gallons, but that equates to 100 miles electric for the cost of 1 gallon of gas. No brainer. Thus, and 82 mile round trip is mostly electric. Get it?

If I didn't use mountain mode, my gas miles would be about 45, instead of 30. So, I use about .6 gallons of gas for that 82 mile round trip.

I really don't trick it. It is one of the awesome things I've learned going to the Volt meetings. The ones that you said I stand and sieg heil.

The world class techs and the engineers that attend the meetings share lots of info that sales people don't know.

So, I'll keep attending the meetings until I don't learn anymore. OK?

Have you ever noticed that every single negative thing said about the Volt here on this thread is wrong? It’s hilarious, just post something that is completely false and hope someone believes it. Crazy!

On this thread, there’s an interesting read by the hater several pages back. He states he has seven computers and threatens to judge negatively if people don’t stop stop voting his posts down. Every since then, the voting completely changes. A few days later he responds “you don’t think I’m the one doing the voting do you.” I bet the moderators love this guy, he’s probably pushing their bonuses up to ridiculous amounts. Wish I could get some of that cheese.

Petey doesn't understand regenerative actions in an elctric / gas hybrid.

Pete!!! When a Volt is coming to a red light, even when it is in gas mode, the letting off of the "gas" pedal puts the car into regenerative actions.

The gas generator turns off, the electric generator begins sending electrons to the battery. The battery then sends electricity to the electric motor.

The car is now in electric mode, about 1/8 mile before the red light.

OK?

Keep trying though. That was the 6th thing you've said in all your 367 postings.

So, I will give you credit for 6 now. Way to break out of the mold dude!!!

The hater sees other haters calling me vile names. I then respond forcefully, without using the curse words, but with facts and links.

He then puts me down for "talking down".

I guess he doesn't read the other haters posts ... eh? That's called "turning a blind eye".

Wow. Here we go again.

G.O.D.(Gizmo Only Dunces) is with us again.

Hey Luvmyvolt.
You speak about people using vile talk?
How about your alter ego--Root?

An example (Just last Saturday) post 3647 by Root....

Quote: "Go smell the hairy crotch of a Canadian woman and once again have a nice day fool"

Nice!!

Or how about this little gem by your alter ego Root:

Quote:(Post 3715 last Monday)....

"Why did gizmo move to canada after his free ride in the USA?
Because his peter grew from 6 inches to 15.24 centimeters!"

Here's another gem from your alter ego Luvmyvolt.
It was posted by Root just yesterday--post 3756.

Quote: "Did your wife shave her crotch? Don’t want any pubic hair getting into the drink"

Luvmyvolt, there's now no doubt in my mind....

You and your alter ego Root (plus a few other phoney usernames) are one and the same person making use of ISP masking software.

Too many coincidences, too many little slip ups, and occasional ISP annotations of ISP being masked.

The games people play never ceases to amaze.

Wrong!
Responding "forcefully"?
More like "condescendingly"!!
A put down in every other sentence.
Claiming the high road is merely hypocracy.

Same old same old.. it's IP masking software!! I love it when you dig yourself into a corner. It's always the same old excuses. Keep it up though, we do like humor.

To love Volt: Don't worry, he got his panties in an uproar like this and sowre up and down that I was JJfads using IP masking software to become Root. We go through this every couple of months. Just sit back and watch, quite funny.
