GM, Hitachi, provided input re specifications.
"provided input re specifications" aka known as design/engineering. What do you have against this company anyway. They are also contracted by lots of other companies. This is no different than a supplier making parts for a door or an instrument panel.

You know dolt, you are such a pathetic, little human being. And I use the term human being loosely.
Whoever is using your name obviously hates you. I don't hate you.
To quote Sixto Rodriguez:
"Hatred is too strong of an emotion to waste on someone you don't like."
I take great pleasure in knowing that you are a failure in debating me. You attack my grand daughter because you can't attack me on an intellectual level. Probably on any subject. I know it burns you that you have been one upped by someone you hate.
I don't need to hide behind your name to make you look bad. You make yourself look bad!
You wallow because that is all you have left. Your buddy from Canada loves your posts because he is letting you do his dirty work. Even to the point of attacking little 10 year old girls.
If you dare try debating me on an intellectual level, I'm here. Awaiting.
Otherwise, go ahead and wallow. You make yourself the buffoon.
You are the one who introduced the little slut into this thread, not me, ergo you were the one who made her a target.

As for anybody who hates me or does not, WHO CARES? You keep talking about yourself as some sort of expert on anything and everything you talk about, that is a joke. I give for example your statement about gas not going stale and can be stored for years.

Gas does in fact go stale, ever hear of condensation? Ever hear of replacing bad gas in a boat or lawnmower after a winter of storage? The real facts (admitted to be GM) are that the volt gets about 30 to 35 miles off of an electric charge, depending on several considerations such as but not limited to. The way you drive, the type of terrain you are driving, whether you use either the heater or air conditioner while you are driving. The next real world fact about a volt is that on a 100 mile trip the volt will do the first 30 to 35 miles on electric and the next 65 to 70 on gas at about 33 mpg, ergo the volt takes about 2 gallons of gas to do the first hundred miles where the elantra takes three making a giant savings of one gallon at a price of between $3.25 to 4.00 and the driver of the elantra will not suffer penalty from using heater or air conditioner. Now I know you will bring up your daily trips for food and other things, however, the real world solution to this is that more and more towns and cities are allowing the "Estate Car" to be used for this reason at a cost of less than $2.000 if you are smart and know where to shop. Oh yes, unless you are unable to do physical activity there is always the old, tried and true bicycle that can be used. You will be glad to know that there are many communities where people who commute on bikes can park them free of charge and meet at local meeting places to celebrate their new found good health.

Meanwhile, his country suffers another devastating disaster, and Root continues his crusade of vitriol and hate....

BTW Root----What Luvmyvolt claims is untrue.
Gasoline will go "stale" no matter what material a gas tank is made of.
Gasoline in a vacuum (volts "vacuum" isn't really much of a vacuum anyway), will only slow down the degradation slightly.
He tends to embellish his claims.

You are wrong again. The Volt will not allow the gas to go stale.

You also forget to mention the rest of his post. Like the real hater you are, you intentionally omit what he says and instead apply selective reading.

Read the parts you omit:

Gas, when stored in a tank, such as the Volt can last for years.
gasoline can hold for months and years if properly stored."

The engineers at GM picked a specific time to burn off some of the gas if pure electric has been used for months. The car does not, repeat, not burn off all of the gas. It only burns off enough so that just a few gallons added to the gas left over will extend the life of the fuel.

The Chevy Volt's gas tank is a stainless steel, vacuum sealed tank.

When the operator presses the gas door button, a message appears on the dash screen telling the person to wait for the car to allow air into the system.

When the gas door is closed, the air is pumped out of the tank, thus creating a vacuum.

Gas can last for years in a vacuum.
__________

So why do you omit everything that he said in his posts? Selective readin perhaps? Yes

Add these two facts and your statement turns into propaganda:

Gas in the Volt will not go bad.

You can get up to 50 miles on electric charge in a Volt.

Psst. you should leave little girls out of your prop.. pretty nasty even for a person of your limited reasoning abilities.

If you go back to the original postings you will see he gets attacked for congratulating Chevy. He never said anything about the design or contracting out work. You brought that into the conversation. You are the only one embellishing anything.

Those tornadoes were a real tragedy. They will be here today. Where have I used vulgarity and nonsense? That is just another baseless attack by you. Not to worry, I’m used to it. Like I said yesterday, you never would let us have this place for all things positive about Volt and that speaks to your character.

You also still don’t know what a hater is.

You are correct! The Volt is an over weight coal burning fraud, and when running on gas it's a joke. Don't expect the Volt to be around much longer.

Gas in any container will go bad because gas is a mixture of different elements and they can and will seperate, no matter the type of storage.

Your personal statement of "You can get UP TO 50 miles on an electric charge" goes against the facts that GM gives. Green Car Magazine (a very pro electric car magazine) did a real world test and got between 22 and 30 miles on an electric charge depending on the type roads, elevation changes and whether they ran air conditioner or heater which uses the same batteries as the drive motor. You are right in a way, you might be able to get 50 Miles on an electric charge if you start at the top of a mountain and go 50 miles on a steep down grade.

As for the brat, it was luvvolt who brought her into the conversation, not me. He made her and his love for local music something that supposedly made him the better person, ergo, you need to fcuk off.

Read the rest of the post dude. Gas in a Volt can’t go bad, the engine will burn it off. Get it now?

GM increased the numbers up to 50 miles on an electric charge. Do you understand this simple statement?(His head starts buzzing now)

The Volt is a failure and GM will prove it in a year of so. They will discontinue the Volt, repackage a new image and shoe horn the shoddy technology into it as the American Buying public has rejected the original as seen by lack of sales figures.

Lol, you still don’t get it. At least you get credit for letting the gas thing go and not talking about children. Now pay attention.. the Volt can get up to 50 miles on a charge. Relax a minute…let it sink in.

Now let’s take a look at what we’ve learned about the Volt today:

The gasoline in a Volt can’t go stale. The technology in the Volt will prevent this from happening.

The Volt has an air tight stainless steel gas tank that creates a vacuum.

The Volt can get up to 50 miles on an electric charge.

Learn from who, an ignorant son of a bitch like you? Please give your documentation about your so called facts that YOU have learned and I do not mean a U-Tube reference, I am talking about documented and written in major publication facts. I know coming from a state that ranks in the lower 5% on educational level it will be hard for you to weed out opinion and personal beliefs from documented facts. See, suckaroot man, not only are you ignorant, you are also a coward posting under the names of others and changing words so that you do not offend the powers that be. I suffer from no such problems.

We have learned only one documented fact, based on sales figures the American Buying Public has rejected the volt as a viable vehicle. It has been relegated to the oddity status with people who think they are trend setters and forced state purchase being the backbone of what sales they have.

Now, again, go fuck yourself.
