Our Chevy Volt mileage actual results are much better than we anticipated. So far, we are able to travel most days entirely within the battery range.
Chevy Volt Trip Log from MyVolt.com
In March, Chevy started feeding Volt data to the MyVolt.com website for Chevy Volt owners to access their vehicle mileage data. Here’s the top/bottom of the past 30-day report for our volt, including the totals at the bottom, and my calculation of the totals showing 1924 miles per gallon.
You can see from the totals in the red band, we drove our volt 615.75 total miles from June 3 through July 3, and during that time period we used 0.32 gallons of gasoline. That equates to 1,924.2 miles per gallon. We are pleased with these Chevy Volt mileage results. We have not pulled into a gas station with the Volt since February – more than 4 months!
Our Chevy VOLT drove 837 miles the past 30 days, on only 0.09 gallons of gas. Plus some electricity of course, which costs about one to two dollars per day.
Chevy Volt 30 day Mileage Results
Our Chevy Volt got 9,300 Miles Per Gallon the past 30 days
The gas mileage calculates to 837 miles / 0.09 gallons = 9,300 miles per gallon. This far exceeds our expectation. We still have not added any gas to the car in three months, and still have over 7 gallons sitting in the tank. One reason we have been able to get such good results with the VOLT is that we installed a 240 Volt charging in the garage so when we get home we can charge it quickly and take it out on errands in the evening on the 2nd charge. We rarely find ourselves outside the battery range. When fully charged, we typically have about 38 to 40 miles battery range per charge, with normal driving. We can extend that a few extra miles if we are careful in accelerating and braking so we can minimize lost energy due to driving technique.
Our Chevy Volt Mileage for April was 1,332 miles per gallon – we drove 919.1 miles using 0.69 gallons. For the most recent 30 days our mileage has averaged 3,465 miles per gallon – we drove 901 miles on 0.26 gallons. I’ll post another video this weekend showing the data.
Recently, Chevy started submitting Volt mileage data to the Volt consumer web portal so among other useful information, Volt owners can monitor their efficiency and mileage data.
Chevy Volt Mileage Portal
Today for the first time, the recent 30-day Chevy Volt mileage report was available for us to see how our Volt performed the past 30 days. I was thrilled to see that in the 965 miles we drove our Volt these recent 30 days, we used only 0.57 gallons of gas. This equates to 1,693 miles per gallon. We did not need to add any gasoline to our Volt during that time!
Chevy Volt Mileage Consumer Portal data:
One of the reasons we decided to purchase a Volt was because of the Chevy Volt mileage – we hoped that we could achieve something better than 100 miles per gallon, so our expectations are exceeded to be realizing well over 1000 miles per gallon.
In the chart, you will notice that most days our usage is around 30 to 40 miles. Our usage patterns are particularly well suited to get good mpg benefits because the Chevy Volt mileage is optimized with about 40 miles round trip per charge. Some days, we are able to do a 30 to 40 mile usage, return home for a charge, and then take another trip so we are still on 100% electric even though the total miles for the day far exceeds 40 miles.
