Curt,
All true, I did take a little artistic license on the Volt, but it is such
a handy whipping boy when it comes to the whole green machine thing. Based

Sort of like Edsel, or Delorian... grand idea, poor actual preformance and
return on investment.

Still, I take your point, and will however keep owning diesels.
