    What did you end up paying for the Volt? I realize it's early, but what MPG numbers are you getting?

    I got the volt for 40,500 it's a loaded demo it only had 400 miles on her MSRP at 44,800

    I'm getting over 40 miles on electric and 40 mpg on gas.. so i'm doing very well

    as to why she was in the dealer well some one got over excited and really topped her off when they gave me it which cause gas to go in to the evap system.. which needed to be replaced. all is fixed and no squeezing it for me one click and i'm done.

    Congrats!

    Rubbing alcohol will removed that "invisible" adhesive residue left over from the lettering. Give it a good wax afterwards.
