If the Volt is such a inexpensive car to operate why are the taxpayers being screwed every time one is sold? What a ripoff of honest taxpayers!
Good point.
Don't forget the massive bailout that GM got in 2009.
Taxpayers and Bondholders got royally screwed on that one too!

The priusev is getting our tax dollars? Remember Adam 11, a bit of transparency from now and then will do wonders.

Cost of fuel for fuel cell. About $4.75 Best mpg for a fuel cell car ... 7.9 cents per mile.
On a bad day ... my Volt gets 2.9 cents per mile. 2.5 cents on good days and everything else is in between.
Fuel cells!!!!! You still have to go to the fuel station on top of that. I go home.
Volt gets 2.9 cents per mile on a mile and that's on a bad day? The Volt is just astonishing.

The "Great Grandstander" accuses me of being someone else fairly often. Pathetic. Basically it's just another of his puny attempts to use guesswork and intimidate.
This time it's "Voice Of Reality" that I'm supposed to be.
He says he "Got "Voice of Reality" deleted.
Good news---his posts were beyond vulgar in my opinion.
Well, This Little Man is out to lunch in this instance just like he has been all along
For your information Little Man, here's the truth....
I have changed usernames from time to time, primarily because a few dimwits play game with them. That, I admit.
But,(now,read this slowly), "unlike those same dimwits, I have never (read "NEVER") changed my ISP location---Windsor, Canada".
You are completely wrong about your inferences that I posted as "Voice of Reality", and all those other names you attributed to me--"Dolt", etc.
I don't play those kinds of juvenile username games--unlike the dimwits who do regularly.
In fact, why not do what I have done and see for yourself what's going on here. You claim to be a tea leaf reading whiz, so that should be easy for you.
I popped a few "Hook" links in here back in June and July, then using a Query and Response Tool on some who clicked on those links, I learned who the culprits are who are playing those games--and where they live.
You would be surprised to know who you were dealing with (and still are) at the time.
Like I said to you once before..."Not everyone who disagrees with you is your enemy, and not everyone who agrees with you is your friend". Next time, heed that advice!!
Oh yes, one more thing---The "Voice of Reality" guy is a standalone person. He isn't one of the dimwits playing IP/Username games!
And I actually told him a couple of times that he was going too far in his posts!(If you're such an astute researcher--look it up)
Cheers.
You are Voice of Reality. What a douche. So all this time you really were the gay dog eater everybody expected you were.

Evidently you know all about ÌP Spoofing`!!!
You must be a bigger dimwit than previously thought, for you naively must think you`ve got everybody fooled.
You`re busted, dipstick!!

The only transparency I see around here is that breeze which appears to blow from your right ear and out the left one.

Yes, pretty much all the new EVs get a subsidy, but GM got a much bigger chunk of tax dollars than all the other carmakers combined.
And also took down a good many bondholders, plant closures, GM dealerships, GM employees, their pensions and benefits, not to mention a ton of 401Ks.
Their bankruptcy hurt a great many people, and then got a boatload of corporate welfare.

Hail the old "Deflect and Divide" ploy.
I guess we'll have to consider this as Root's admission of culpability in the IP Spoofing strategy.
Darn--it's gotta be embarassing to be exposed.
I feel kinda bad that this has happened to you Root.

Rest in peace dead troll..your postings and silly rants and accusations of anger have all been fraud. Yet you tried to pin it on others.“I posted links in June and July,” he exclaimed.
No you didn’t.
I know your IP address,” he moaned. No you don’t.
“I know where you live” he belched. No you don’t.
With one small whimper he yet again tries to peddle his unbelievable mess “IP Spoofing.”

You wanted to make a mockery of the forum and that’s all you ever wanted. Even after this, Volt still exceeds all others and you’re left to a few last ditch efforts to attempt one last face saving technique to justify your dirty “filthy” deeds and guess work. Dry the tears from your face and slowly rest your head.

Here Troll, I picked one you can relate to.

Would it make you feel any more comfortable about being busted if your IP address appeared?
Face it Root, you got caught, and now it's all bluff and bluster trying to weasel out from under the truth.

Bumped into that same chap I met last week who took his Volt to Florida and back.
He had said that his Volt was not the car to use for a long trip like that.
We were at the same pub tonight, and he dropped by our table to say hello.
Asked him how the Volt was doing.
He said he traded the Volt for "something more useful"
Then he said: "Glad I got rid of that pig"!
Exact words.

News flash to haters. The subsidies for the Volt were collected in 1992, when George Bush Sr. signed the law allowing subsidies for all electrics.

Do we have to go through that again? You childish people keep repeating the same lies over and over.

Did you know that since 1992, gas car drivers have received more than $6,000 in gas breaks at the pump via subsidies for big oil. That's every single gas car driver.

The subsidies for the Volt is at $12 per car and falling every time one is sold.

I can't stand liars.
