The only monumental hoax around here is the Volt.
11,850 miles. 25 gallons of gas.$287 charging costs. Total:

$390 for 11,850 miles..032 per mile. 100 mpg when gas falls to $3.20 per gallon. Fat chance of that happening.

Gas could go down to $2.00 a gallon and I would still beat you.

Oh, by the way. The Volt is the most loved car by owners, two years in a row, E-V-E-R. That's a good hoax.

OK ... enjoy the gas station .... twice this week .... 100 times a year .... 96 times more than me in 18 months .... nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

And by the way dolt, you said that you finally saw a Volt. I thought you saw one at a gas station ... the owner was ragging on the car .... remember?

Do your parents know you are using their computer? I suspect the 2 months we didn't hear from you, you were restricted.

I guess they were out of the house when you came on.

OK ... enjoy your Fairlane. Is it still giving you 13 mpg? Save those pennies, that die cast Tesla is not cheap. At least $100.

Only one problem LMV...

As usual, you take "facts" and abuse them.

You compared the cost of ownership between a high end plug-in Prius to the cost of ownership of a base Volt.

Changes the numbers quite dramatically if you use a high end Volt as a comparison.

Furthermore, there's a $5000 difference in net cost of Prius because its credit is only $2500.

When Prius gets a bigger battery, it'll qualify for $7500. Then how will the numbers look.

And, if the entire credit allowances are dropped for either one, that will make a huge difference.

Volt finishes near bottom in comparison road test; add a longer distance road test and no welfare payment to buy the thing and it would be dead last.

This is too funny! These free charging stations will only attract cheapskates like iluvmyvolt. They'll order the cheapest thing on the menu, drink water, and screw the wait staff out of a decent tip; while chasing away good paying customers. Can't make this stuff up

You're not being truthful Root.

Per Edmunds:

Base price for 2013 Chevy Volt..........39,836
Base price for 2013 Prius Plug-In.......$32,166

Difference..........7,670

Makes a heck of a difference in the 5 year cost of operation.

Plus, LMV quotes a 2013 Chev Volt 5 year cost at $34,573.
Kelly Blue Book quotes that same Volt 5 year cost at $40,629.

A little variability there Root.

I would tend to believe the Blue Book.

Everybody else does.

Don't forget to add the price of a second car, the insurance for the second car, the gas for the second car, the maintenance for a second car (much more than a Volt's), etc.

While I love GM's effort in putting out the Spark, I've been in a Spark. Please. That's like comparing your Elantra to my Volt. Your Elantra drives like an Elantra. My Volt drives better than a Cadillac.

In 7 years, my Volt will be at $22,500. You Elantra will be at over $50,000.

Who's stupid?

12,000 miles. 25 gallons of gas used. You can't do that in any of those other cars. AAA named the Volt the best commuter car.

So, when those cars get back to daily driving, they are getting their arsses stomped.

Pick and chose all you want, dolt.

The Average American drives 37 miles a day for 365 days a year. That means almost no gas for the Average Volt driver. Once again, you can't do that in any of those other cars.

Also, you should try reading your links. Per your link:

"The Volt came third in this comparo because the full list price was used in the weighting. It would have nabbed top spot with the Ontario or BC rebate factored in."

In other words, they didn't factor in tax credits that US drivers get!!! In other words, if this test was done in the USA, the Volt would have kicked arss.

Come on Dolt, you can do better than that.

Also:

"We all liked the Volt, and this dayís activities showed it in its best light. After running a few errands earlier in the day, the Chevy made it about halfway around our loop on battery power before the 1.4L four-cylinder fired up and quietly hummed away. This pretty well represents a long commute from the suburbs.

The Volt is the epitome of smoothness. Power delivery is strong, seamless and silent, and with 100 percent of its 273 lb-ft of torque instantly available, your right foot is a direct line to forward motion. Itís also a quick lift to retardation, as the aggressive regenerative braking when getting off the throttle means youíre not using the brake pedal nearly as much as in a regular car while in stop and go traffic."

They loved the car!

Also, they only got 25 miles electric. No way is this representative. Most Volt owners get well over 40. That would have been an even worse arss kicking.

OK ... enjoy the gas stations.
