Must own stock in the coal industry...
Doesn't GE build the turbines that electric plants use to generate electricity? Just sayin' ... .
“Must own stock in the coal industry.”
Very funny. Almost as funny as this bit of information I found on plugincars.com:
“Hello- I’m a GM tech who just completed some training on the LUU 1.4l engine that will be in the Volt. to Tom- I asked that same question regarding how much fuel would be burned during a fuel maintenance mode and the answer I got was that the Volt’s computer systems calculate the average age of the fuel in the tank, If the average age reaches roughly 1 year, the engine will burn the stale fuel and “prompt a refueling event” in other words, run it out or close to out of gas. That is “Fuel Mantenance” mode. If the engine goes roughly 6 weeks without starting, then it will enter “Engine maintenance mode” and run for about 10 minutes to keep everything lubricated inside the engine. Given that, I wold imagine it to be pretty rare to have the average age of the fuel in the tank be over 1 year. I’m sure all of this is subject to change, but this is how we GM techs were recently taught.”
Seems like the Volt will burn your old fuel for you even when not using it. Must buy stock in coal industry.
