Infinity Miles Per Gallon

Sorry, a bit of a rant here. Chevy Volt owners love to post that their car gets “150 MPG”, “250 MPG”, etc. What they’re failing to account for is the electric element in this equation.

If I carry 1 gallon of gasoline in the back of my i-MiEV (as I did a few days ago to fill up the lawnmower), I am getting infinity miles per gallon!

Are we understanding the silliness? Additionally, if you’re getting 250 MPG in your Volt, are you better off with a 100% electric vehicle instead?

Thank you. I now return you to your previously scheduled program, already in progress.  🙂
