Drivers like Brent Waldrep, of Auburn Hills, Mich., almost avoid gasoline altogether. Brent has driven more than 23,500 miles in his Volt in 21 months and says he has only been to a gas station twice.
“The last time, was in August (2012), and I still have about 65 percent of that tank left. I go about 9,000-10,000 miles between fill ups,” he said.
Other drivers have similar stories.
“It’s been more than 5,000 miles and I’ve only filled up once not including the dealer fill,” said Larry Read of Canyon Lake, Texas.
Volt owners have driven a combined 150 million electric-powered, gas and tailpipe-emissions free miles, which is the equivalent of the distance from Earth to Mars.
