Volt Owner Fills Up for First Time in Six Months
June 24, 2011 12:51 pm ET
After six months and nearly 2,500 miles, Washington, D.C., area Chevy Volt owner Jeff Parmet finally had to head to the gas station to fill up the car’s tank. A strong proponent of alternative fuels, Parmet said “he could live with filling up every six months.”
He loves his Volt and reports he’s had no trouble with the car since he purchased it in mid-December of last year. In addition to being impressed with the Volt, he’s pleased with the ongoing contact he’s had with Chevrolet about the vehicle and appreciates that he’s contributing to a body of knowledge about electric transportation.
Parmet is able to conveniently charge his Volt at home with his 240V charging station, in addition to the 11 charging stations throughout the D.C. metro-area. Thanks to a Maryland program, Parmet only had to pay for the installation of his home charging station.
To this day, when Parmet drives the Volt to do local errands, the car becomes a conversation piece. He’s happy to explain to neighbors and strangers that the Volt really is more car than electric.
