Engineer Achieves 3,108 MPG In Chevrolet Volt6
Chevrolet’s Volt official gets an EPA composite rating of 60 MPG when running the electricity and gasoline motors. However, one man has taken that rating, and put it to complete shame.
Andy Oury, a battery systems engineer at General Motors posted up a video that showed his Volt recording 1,554 miles on electric power alone – which equals to be about 3,108 MPG. But truth be told, Oury has a short commute, meaning he can rely on just the electric power to get him from point A to point B.
You might be wondering if Oury’s Volt has used any gasoline. In fact, yes. In the video, Oury showed the Volt’s Maintenance Mode which has the Volt circulate its fluids and run the engine to keep it going stale.

I’m sure mean
“Chevrolet’s Volt OFFICIALLY gets…”
“…which equals to…” and not “…equals to BE about…”
“…keep it FROM going stale.”
Why am I calling you out? We have a responsibility when we publish our words to do justice to our language and pay it the respect that it is due. We must also set an example for the younger generation who are struggling with it and who are being swept aside if they do not couple it with some other imposed language. English is not easy for even those of us that speak it as a first language. But we do ourselves and it no justice by not seeking to improve ourselves accordingly.
Kindly allow me to call myself out!
I’m sure I mean:
“I’m sure YOU mean…”
I did that on purpose…honestly!

Brilliant engineering!!!!! To all GM engineers, we are not worthy, we are not worthy!!! 🙂
From what I’ve read and heard about the Volt, mileage varies widely depending upon use. I’ve heard of fill ups for some owners being between 900 to 1,000 miles and other times as “low” as 75 mpg depending on the use of the vehicle. It doesn’t matter what the mileage of the vehicle, this car is brilliantly engineered and will only get more efficient and refined throughout its life cycle.
At “voltstats.net” there are many Volt owners who get better MPG ratings than 3,108. The top Volt gets 9,618 MPG!! And this number come from OnStar data collections.
