2012 Chevrolet Volt Real Gas Mileage: Pros

The reason you should buy a Volt is all about the fuel cost. In my case I'm averaged close to ~100 mpg (It would have been higher but for a recent 200 mile round trip to Ikea). Granted that mpg is excluding the electricity costs which in my case this car is costing ~ +$30/month increase in my electric bill so after 3 months of ownership (leased October 2012) I've used ~30 gallons of fuel (average cost $3.40 /gal) and driven 3200 miles which is ~ 6.2 cents/mile. Comparing this it a compact (Ford Focus) averaging 30 mpg with regular gas ~ $3.1 would have averaged 10 cents/mile. see full Chevrolet Volt review

I've had the Volt for 9 months and 13,000 miles. I drive it exactly like I would any of my other cars. It putts around town on errands, it goes hundreds of miles for various trips and everything in-between. Life-to-date gas mileage is 75.3--higher than I expected. see full Chevrolet Volt review

Although the electric range on this car fits most of my needs the fuel economy when the battery is empty is poor. Typically this car will get ~35 mpg (on highway) in premium gulping engine only mode - much lower than other hybrids and worse than many compact cars costing half as much. Therefore if you regularly traveling much beyond the battery only range (say >45 miles) you'd be better served with traditional hybrid. see full Chevrolet Volt review
