Iraq Veteran Buys Chevy Volt
According to GM’s release, Tanner has cut his monthly commuting costs by two-thirds: from $300 to under $100 by charging nightly.
“I also love that when I’m in full electric mode, it’s so quiet – I call it my vehicular ninja,” Tanner said. “And the way the cockpit is set up; I feel as though I’m inside my own video game.”
“In my old car, I was filling up about every four days. Now I’m filling up twice a month, and getting around 640 miles to the tank, which is fantastic,” said Tanner. “Another big decision (to drive an electric vehicle) was the fact that I’d be using less gas. Having fought overseas twice, I have strong opinions on oil and its effects on international politics and policies.”
Guess GM doesn’t agree to foreign oil either!
