It is a bit lame though, I mean the whole topic of recharging a hybrid. Image

Well I don't know.   If you were in the habit of brushing your horse's teeth, you would be just as careful which brush you chose as for yourself though it might not be the same one.

Then, you might argue with someone over whether it was necessary to use an electric toothbrush because it was the 'best' approach, keeping in mind that there may still be people out there who use their finger and salt (and who's to say that they are wrong - ok, I know who Image )

The Volt is a 'range extender' and it seems to be a mighty-fine vehicle. I can't help but think that it should have been released along with a refined EV1 in a simultaneous release. Then GM would have shown that they had repented for their error (don't want to use a religious term here) and that they were on a new path.

The BMW I3 coming out is a battery job which can be modified and have a range-extender motor added (the place for the motor is accounted for). Even that is better than what GM did. Still, it does appear to be a mighty-fine car.

I can't help but shrink away from dash error messages telling you to 'go to your dealer'. Hey, don't wanna, unless it's my idea.

Edit: Missing letter (Weber and all that, oh, and me)
