“I might even buy one. Just make it affordable.”
I spent this past weekend working the Grand Am at Laguna Seca with a gentleman who has owned a Volt for more than a year and commutes 125 miles a day in it. He is an IT guy so he knows computers and he told me that he has accumulated his costs for gas and electricity and figures that it equates to buying gas at $1.41 per gallon. The car has not had any service issues.
I can run my 1984 on used fryer grease after straining and reformulation for about eighty cents a gallon and never go near a gas station or electric plug.
