What have we learned lately?

Gas and oil in a Volt can go stale if not used.

We're still seeing the same propaganda about Volt, and any time someone challenges it, Luvmyvolt goes on another defensive rampage.

Rott is still occupying the bottom rung on the ladder of stupid posts.

The resident "Username Faker" is indulging his fetish and copying everyone's usernames.

Luvmyvolt is desperate to justify his ownership of a Volt, and is now using up entire pages of this forum to do so.

Root is back at his old tricks--vulgarity, nasty personal insults, plus renewal of an old wrinkle. He fakes usernames.

The gruesome twosome (Root and Luvmyvolt, have ramped up their strategy of nasty trickery. Faking usernames.

All of the really vulgar posts by the resident "Username Faker" are being removed by site administrators.(Thank You Administrators)

Now if you want to argue a hypothetical “but if you store the car for months the gas will go bad” sure, you can say the gas will go at some point. That would be true of every car, motorcycle, or tank.
To put it in plain English, the gasoline in the Volt isn’t going bad and saying it is or “can” is just another one of the multitudes of “challenges” you spit out daily.
Thats why the tesla is the better option my delusional friend.No gas or oil to worry about going bad.Just get in the number one rated car from consumers reports and drive quietly on pure electric power.Do you agree?

Root, It would be greatly appreciated if you would just leave me out of your self serving fantasies from now on.

Frankly Root, I don't like you, I don't like your condescending nonsense, I don't like your vulgar personal insults, I don't like the silly username games you play, and so on.

Basically you're just not a nice person.

And I really don't wish to be associated with the likes of you in any way.

I will continue to do my thing here without any of your stupid and mindless interference.

Simply leave me out of your miserable life.

Dismal Sales For Chevy Volt ThisYear

GM's lame reasoning for the post-election lows (actually, the lowest since February of 2012) for Volt sales is that consumers pulled sales from January by purchasing in December of 2012 when GM sold a whopping 2,633 Volts.
In the scenario GM presents, this means that sales for Volts can be expected to average fewer than 2,000 a month in the absence of money-losing incentives to sell Volts.
GM has previously admitted that there is no market for the Volt and that demand was manufactured by incentivizing short term leases that end up costing taxpayers about $10 for every gallon of gas saved by the Volt.
These money-losing leases drove about two-thirds of the politically-charged Volt's "sales" leading up to the presidential election and were funded by government-owned Ally Financial.

More On Volt's Dismal Sales This Year

GM's plug-in EV focus sees the company now planning for a plug-in version of the Chevy Cruze (the same platform as the Volt), a Cadillac version of the Volt, and the recently unveiled plug-in Chevy Spark.
The insane money-losing strategy of building cars that consumers do not seem to want is costing both shareholders and the taxpayers who are funding the technology with billions of dollars.
A recent Congressional Budget Office report revealed that the money is not well spent and that taxpayers will pay about $7.5 billion on EV subsidies over the next few years for little benefit.

Has GM Been Dishonest About Their Volt?

There is a major concern with the dishonesty that GM has exhibited over the potential for the Chevy Volt.
The Volt was touted as a "game-changer" for GM as taxpayer money was lobbied for during the company's bailout process.
The media pumped GM's hype and expectations were that the Volt would be selling about 20,000 a month by now, not 2,000!
When expectations fell far short, GM lied about the reasons for the failure, first blaming low supply and, even more bizarrely, a right wing conspiracy to discredit the car.
How unethical is it for a company supported by a Democratic President to make political statements against Republicans and help the benevolent sitting president to win reelection?

Agree 100%, thank you. The moral of the story is this, if you fail at one controversy, cough up another. If that doesn’t work, do it again. When you fail at that too, do it again, and again, and again, and again. When you get into the situation of actually being a failure at that and all else fails, resort to hate.

It’s a sad day when people regurgitate talking points they themselves don’t even believe. This usually happens when you’re the queen of controversy.

Being that you are intent on "toning things down".....

Post number 4608 (previous page) deserves your attention.
It is vulgar and offensive.
It violates Topix code of conduct.
It is posted by a perennial faker of usernames.
This post, along with its author should be removed.
Thank you.

Does anyone know if the Volt can be converted into a stretch limousine? The Hollyweird types would buy them up like luxury yachts.

Critics Of The Volt Entitled To Their Say.

Critics of the Volt would not really care about the dismal sales if taxpayers were not paying for the folly.
If a private sector company foolishly follows a money-losing strategy for ideological reasons, that's their choice.
But the Volt was and is funded with taxpayer money.
Further, most financing comes from taxpayer-owned Ally Financial, which the Obama Administration has refused to exit while GM is reliant upon the funding.
This refusal has often been criticized by a government watchdog in recent reports.

If you add garlic to the Volt's gas tank, you'll never have to worry about the Volts gas going stale. It will also increase the Volt's MPG in the Cold Mountain Mode without defroster, heat, radio, passangers, luggage, ski rack, and snowmobile trailer by about 2 miles per gallon. iluvmyvolt will have the exact data any time now.

Most are done up with square wheel wells like a Silverado with a spinners option. Tinted windows are a must but these aren’t any tinted windows. These are actually solar panels bought from the remnants of Solyndra. Pink plush interiors and thin wristed furry handcuffs are complimentary in the Canadian edition. These are mostly sold in the Toronto area, marketed under “Volt Plush.”

Yes but the garlic must be fresh for desired effect.

That goes without saying, and even better if it's grown in Michigan.
