Let's see ... here are some fake Volt positive stuff .... according to the poo man. I guess he knows more than the Europeans, JD Power, the SAE, BMW, and on and on and on and on.

First American car ever to be named European car of the year.

Chevy Volt named Best Engineered Car by the world renowned Society of Automotive Engineers

BMW chooses the Volt as the car to beat when designing the i8

Chevy Volt named most loved car by owners in JD Power study for third year in a row.

Diesel Car publication names the Chevy Volt Best Eco Car

And about 20 other awards, including two from Motorweek. The most awarded car in history. Ouch ... that hurts trolls. Especially when their ears are already freezing from the sub zero weather in "Mexico".

Somebody forgot. In the only real test for the Volt's popularity among it's owners, it received the highest rating ever, by any car, in history. That was before the Tesla S went on sale. But it still won it's categories award three times in a row.

That forum can't be faked.

Oh wait ... the trolls believe that Volt owners are so ashamed about buying this piece of crap that they go around telling everyone how awesome the car is just to save face.

Yeah ... that's it.

This is how I know a fake from a real owner. It's called first hand experience. First hand experience is something trolls lack, badly. Well, at least the dolt is unabashed. He is a proud liar. He doesn't hide the fact that he doesn't know squat about the Volt. Read on.
Speaking of the fake KBB Volt owner reviews. One of the other negative reviews that does not come from MI, is by another hater / fake. How do I know it is fake?
1. He claims that it costs more to charge using a 220 V charger than a 110 charger.
2. He claims that there is an extra charge for 220v charging
3. He claims that his charging costs are more than gasoline.
First of all, a kwh is a kwh. Doesn't matter if it is used by a 110v appliance or a 220v appliance. Whether it is a 4 watt light or a 1500 watt space heater. It is still just a kwh. No power company charges different rates for a dryer than it does a light. They only charge for the amount of energy used by those items. The amounts are different, but the rate for those amounts are the same.
What are you babbling about now? Twenty years working for an electric utility and you just can't explain simple electricity using Ohm's Law; but then again your butchering of simple math and financial analysis is well documented. Study up on Ohm's Law and get back to us with some cut and past ramblings; it will give you something to do while you're sleazing a free charge for your Volt.

Car is now 3 years old and its not even worth 20,000. What a dummy i was. I guess this explains why gm is leasing at 199 with a 42,000 residual. Nobody wants it""

We all know it drives you crazy, but there is a lot of truth to that statement. The Volt will be a short lived contraption, a maintenance ticking time bomb, it will be in the Rube Goldberg Museum before too long; Wait for it!

ďItís good enough for meĒ The mark of completing something 50%, or not complete and a lack of standards.
Actually there is a proper definition of Devilís Advocate though much beyond your scope, dealing in a juridical manner to address beatification and canonization. By you butchering the term and flaunting it around is pure blasphemy.
Using it in your context with a proven pro homosexuality tense i.e. calling one homophobic for expressing their beliefs against homosexuality. Using the term to participate in trolling actions and bragging about your various accomplishments, business, family and vacations proves that.
Not to mention, the Advocate is the largest publication for pro-lesbian, gay and transgendered support and news.

Good grief this is a thread about a car. Is it that important for you to disgrace the car and make fun of others that do like it at every opportunity, to squander an outlet for owners to share and participate in the opportunity to share? Or do you just want to troll to prove a point?

Hilarious, you donít even know how to get a fake picture of Mexico to us. Iíd hate to see you trying to operate a Volt.ďWhatís this thing do? It doesnít make any noise! Why don't we have to fill up?" Crash

Canít expect much more from a troll masquerading as an advocate for the devil I suppose. Lol

Dolt. Think hard. I'm obsessed with my car.

You, on the other hand, are obsessed, not only with my car, but with me.

You couldn't break away from that obsession if you tried with all your might. You would lay in bed just sweating from the addiction.

I, on the other hand, couldn't care less if you never posted again. However, as I stated before, at least you are an unabashed liar. You know zero about the Volt, yet you post, merrily away and you don't try to hide your ignorance in any way, shape or form. I kind of respect that.

OK ... have a good one.

Dolt, once again you show your ignorance. Ohm's law has nothing to do with your utility bill. Ohm's law has much more to do with resistance than it does with kilowatt hours.

The resistance in the cord of your toaster is much more than the resistance of the cord of your refrigerator.

But in the end, it is the flow of electrons that make your meter spin that is the only thing that is monitored.

The power company could care less what total resistance there is in your house. They only care about the little numbers your meter puts out. Go outside and look at your meter. At the end or those little numbers, it says kwh. Probably every meter in the country says that. I don't know, but every meter in the country does monitor kwh's.

Sorry to re-educate you.

Here you go, dolt. The headline is:

"The Electric Bill Project:An Elementary School Introduction to Energy"

http://www.sci-ed-ga.org/modules/k6/elec/elec...

They are showing you how your bill is calculated. Nowhere on there do you see anything about ohm's law or the resistance of the path of your appliances. 1 kwh passing through a cord with the maximum amperage of 15 amps is equal to 1 kwh passing through a cord with the maximum amperage of 10 amps. Or 5 amps. The kwh takes longer to pass through the lower amp cords. But, it is still a kwh.

Remember, ohm's law is current is equal to the voltage / resistance.

Remember, resistance is equal to the voltage divided by the current (amps).

In other words, if you try to put 220 volts through an extension cord with only 5 amps max load, you will fry it.

Most 220v appliances come with 30 amp cords. Most small extension cords are around 7 amps.

Just think of it this way. The bigger around and the shorter the cord, the more amps, the less resistance. You can actually picture it in your head. Well, maybe not. The more copper in the diameter of that cord, the more electrons can flow through it because of the diameter. If the cord is shorter, the electrons have a shorter path to flow.

Or, simply stated, touch the cord. If it's hot, unplug and get a bigger cord.

No, he's not from Mexico. He's in Canada, pretending to be in Mexico. He's a Canaxican.
