Actually calling your son's claims to his gas savings is not calling him a liar it is calling the statement undocumented and non verifiable. Any statement that is attempted to be used like that in a court of law is called hearsay and can not be used because of the lack of ability to verify.
I could make the claim that my son got 50MPG in his Roush Mustang and neither you or I would be able to document the fact that it was or was not true. Perhaps you need to grow some thicker skin when it comes to replies of people casting doubts on your third party claims.
Once again:

This is my documented (down to the link for my utility rates) mpg for overall and for electric only.

133 mpg total
155 mpg electric

All documented. When you say that I can't prove it, you apparently are calling me a liar. I have thick skin. I just like putting haters in their place.

The difference between you and I is that I posted a video showing my sons odometer at 12,000 + miles and the computer only showing 15 gallons of gas used. That is called documentation. Taking it to the next step and calling that documented video "edited" is calling my son a liar.
Tell you what. Take a video of your son in his mustang with a full tank of gas while driving 100 miles without the gauge going down one bit. You can't. You can't mess with the odometer. You can't alter the video. I have been editing videos for 25 years. Altering sound, length, lighting is one thing. Altering content is quite the other.
And please, poo poo, don't go there again about videos not being legal documentation. I already told you once that it takes thousands of dollars in computer and software power to do to video what you can do to a still picture.
LMV, stop being so ridiculously anal and irrationally defensive.
You're imagining things which aren't real, and working yourself into a snit for nothing.
Nobody called your son a liar.
Nobody accused you or your son of editing a video.
All the guy is saying to you ( just as I did) is that YouTube videos aren't considered evidence alone.
They're looked upon in courts as hearsay.
They must be corroborated by additional evidence in order to even be considered even as support documentation.
Nobody is challenging yours or your sons integrity about your fuel consumption data.

As well, you again infer that I'm the author of his posts as well as my own.
Rest assured, you are completely wrong---again.
I do not play those username games.
Even if I could do that, Canadian law considers it an indictable offence (similar to your US felony).
People doing that here can be subject to criminal. Charges.

Back to car facts: Sheeeeeeeesh

I only achieved 132 mpg yesterday. When I say only, what I mean by that is that my "driving style" leaves a lot to be desired. The Volt will actually give you a grade on how you use regenerative actions and how you apply the foot to the pedal. This is something I have never shown before. The screen can show your driving style and give you immediate feedback to help you decide how you want to drive the car.

My style is not the best. I could achieve 145 mpg, but what the heck is another 13 mpg? Especially at 2.65 cents per mile. I think that works out to a savings of about 3 cents. Can't drive that slow for 3 cents.

So 45 miles per charge in summer is good enough. I was getting 47 - 50 for the first few months until I just said "3 cents ain't worth it".

This isn't exaggerated. It's not made up. This is the proof. Documented proof. You will see me change the screen from the energy usage to the energy efficiency mode. I got a terrible 55% driving style from my car. Oh well.

The documented video:

&fe ature=youtu.be

3.4 kwh's used.
$0.095 per kwh paid.
$0.33 cents total for 12.5 miles driven.
132 mpg at the current median price of gas in my area.$3.50 per gallon.

All Iím saying to you (just as I did) is that YouTube videos aren't considered real pornography.
They're looked upon in the nude world as anal teasing.
They must be corroborated by additional rimming in order to even be considered as real porn.

You should study before you call people idiots. First of all, the tank in the Volt is much stronger than standard gas tanks. It is also made of stainless steel. It is also pressurized. This keeps moisture out and doesn't allow for fumes to build up.
There have been several Volts demolished to the point that you could not recognize the car. Not one fire or fatality.
Search first. This keeps the foot from being inserted.
It does not matter what material the tank is made of, nor the fact that the tank is pressurize. Gas as many other chemicals that are flammable produce fumes when sloshed about during the bumps and stopping and starting of everyday driving. Liquid gas will burn, the fumes of a mostly empty tank will explode. For your edification many cars have pressurized gas tanks, this is why some will throw a caution light on the dash when the gas cap is on improperly and or some of the cheaper after market caps are substituted.

As for your picture of a dashboard showing millions of miles with only using a small number of gallons of gas, where is the documented proof this is even a picture of your son's car?

Since when is showing the picture of an unknown dashboard classify as documentation? Documentation requires the W-s Who, what, when, why and where. You have thick skin? Now prove that the picture of the dashboard is that of YOUR car. So far all we have is your word and we all know that the internet is just chocked full of people who tell nothing but the truth.

Therein lies the rub!!
In the real world, most folks would agree with you.
And in the judicial world, there is no question that your comments are correct.
But this is a Topix forum-----basically a free for all.
Its value is exclusive to entertainment, nothing more.
Don't take anything too seriously.
