What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2014 Chevrolet Volt

2014 Chevrolet Volt Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2014 4dr Hatch 149-horsepower Electric + Gas
Many of us Volt owners think Chevy is under-advertising the features of the car. Our usage in three months is 3100 miles. Our tabulated mileage for gasoline is 88 MPG, or somewhere around 7 gallons a month. The largest percentage use is on the home charged 220 volt system which loads 11 kWh into the battery. Depending on outside temperature, this gives between 34 to 38 miles of electric driving, and as spring comes, it will be into the low 40's. An electric charge at the8c rate costs about a dollar. We bought a Clipper Creek 220 Volt charger... it does the task in 4 hours, and it is portable. You can charge on 110volts too, andthat takes 10 hours. You have the choice of how to use the drive system: All electric first, then gas. Or gas first, then electric. And two combined modes. In cold weather we start out with a plugged-in preheat, then go Gas Only to warm it fully, especially if the planned trip will be requiring some gas use because of the distance. For short trips, we use battery power to warm the cabin and seats. Our shopping is a 38 mile trip with a 500 foot elevation change. We do that trip so the total gas usage is 2/10ths of a gallon, sometimes 3/10ths. Our Church trips make up a large portion of the driving miles, and they are always all electric for the 22 mile trip. One thing this does is give a "good feeling" about running an errand.... it is esentally costless. GM Onstar keeps track of all energy use. But I also keep a book log. Some folks don't realize that you coulddrive this car all across the country on gas, and get 37 MPG. see full Chevrolet Volt review

So far have driven in the winter when you get the poorest mileage on the electric motor. I have 3100 km. on the car and lifetime gas consumption is 2.6 Liters per 100km. I dont think there is another car out there that can do this well and it will get even better in the Volt as the weather warms up from the minus 12 degree weather we have had all of Jan and Feb. I LOVE NOT HAVING TO FILL UP AT THE PUMPS AND STILL HAVE NO RANGE ANXIETY. I previously have owned two Prius and the Volt is way ahead in so many ways. see full Chevrolet Volt review

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
2014 Chevrolet Volt Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2013 4dr Hatch 149-horsepower Electric + Gas
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
