    Magneto is an overachiever!

    My ELR, lovingly referred to as Magneto, is starting me out in the am with 49 miles of available no-gas-ready-kilowatt power available! Not 37, not 39, not 41..but FORTY NINE! I have had the car for three weeks and it has exceeded numbers posted by Cadillac. I have measured the miles by power to the odometer and my car is delivering 1-1 so the numbers are right. Hope it keeps it up!

    Good deal! I've never gotten more than 38 EV miles out of my ELR, which is the same I get out of my 2012 Volt. Oh, well...

    That is awesome! In the short time I've had mine, I've broken 41. You've set the bar!

    For a cool spaceship affect, grab a copy of NASA's Symphony of the Planets and play that while you're driving! The entire 5-hour recording is available on iTunes for $10, or you may be able to download it if you can find it on Google. My friends totally geek out when I drive them around with that playing!

    As a side note...I have noticed that the longer I leave it on the charger (currently 120v) the higher my startup number is. The ceiling seems to be 49. I started out with 49 available EV miles and by the time I made my trips between Dallas and Fort Worth I had actually gotten almost 50 miles before the gas kicked in! I will certainly enjoy it as long as it continues...
