Jay Leno drives 11,000 miles in his Chevy Volt, doesn't ever fill up with gas:
Here's a fun bit of trivia: Jay Leno has driven his Chevy Volt over 11,000 miles and doesn't have a single gas station receipt to show for it. According to the New York Times' Wheels blog, Leno has had his plug-in for 11 months and, as he told the Times, "I've never had to put gas in it yet. ... They gave it to me with a full tank of gas. I've used less than half of that."
Given that Leno has an entire fleet of gas-swallowing rides in his garage, he could obviously just take the Volt out whenever he knows he can get there and back again without refueling. You have to be kind of careful to put 11,000 miles on a Volt without ever going more than 40 miles (plus or minus) at a stretch. Luckily, Leno said his commute is less than 35 miles a day, and so he uses the Volt as his daily driver. He then makes a fairly good joke at GM's expense, and you can read it here.Permalink | Email this | Comments
