The first 1,000 miles

Don't worry, I won't let this blog turn into a car blog (or a Volt blog) to be more precise..

I've had my Volt now for just a bit over 6 weeks.  I still love the vehicle and I still have a lot of fun driving it. We have put on a bit over 1,000 miles on the car using only 0.43 gallons of gas.   That's 2,325 MPG!

Obviously, there is still an energy cost for driving the vehicle.  Our electric bill for May increased $9 from the additional electric energy used. 

I'm posting this today, because it looks like I'll be driving down to Orem/Utah County at least three times this week, so I'll have to rely on the internal combustion engine more than I have in the last 6 weeks.
