Once again, you need to research before you take the almighty high ground. The Gas cap on the volt has nothing to do with the system. This is a totally different system than what you think it is. It is far and above a better system. It has to be in order to keep gas fresh for up to a year without being used. The car will not start if the system does not pressurize properly.<quoted text>
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?
Secondly, the claim that you make that I can be posting somebody else's video is exactly what I am talking about. Thank you for supporting my claim.
You claim that I am a liar. and please, saying that you don't know if I am a liar or not is the same thing. Also, you prove to me that you know very little about videos with the Volt as the main subject.
In fact, there are dozens of videos out there with much better mileage than mine or my son's. Why would I steal a video that doesn't even come close to being the best ... duh.
Lastly, you can't re-post a video on YouTube that has been downloaded from that site. Not even your own. What you are saying is that I would have to find another Volt owner, steal his video, or video his screen and then post it.
Question ... why in the world would I do that when I already have a Volt? Duh. I guess you don't know that Volts very rarely use gas. Hint. According to the EPA, the average American driver drives 37 miles a day. That is "no gas" territory for most Volt owners.
So, to find another Volt to video that screen when all I have to do is video mine or my son's screen is a little lame. It's called you slinging poo at the wall and hoping it sticks.
It doesn't stick.
