I didn't think it did. Well that's good. Think they should have the dealer tell people too. It would probably assuage some of the complaints about performance.

VOLDAR drives a Chev Volt whats he doin on here ? That car talk is BS Bunky. You can see a diference in performance from 87 octane to 93 octane on a Dyno run. We have seen perf differences in Ethanol Fuel to Ethanol Free fuel plus increase in MPG for the small cost to run 93 or 91 it is definitely beneficial. So you drive your VOLT I will take my Blue Oval anytime.

What does having a Blue Oval have anything to do with anything?

VOLDAR had a MkIII when the posts you see in this thread were made cavedog309, and this Forum isn't limited to current owners anyways.

Where he lives, and for his purposes, the Volt is a better option for him currently. (seldom travels further than plug-in range on a daily basis)
