Ok, that’s not really our new Chevy Volt, not the one I will be able to sit in and drive anyway. It is brand new but it’s only a diecast model. I’ll admit I am getting a bit antsy waiting for our car to be delivered. We placed the order in early June and it’s been roughly 9 weeks waiting so far.
In the time that’s passed I’ve got the garage all ready for our new car. The electric is ready for charging, the floor is clean and all is in order. We just need a car now.
Getting the garage ready for the Volt wasn’t a difficult task but it did take a bit more than simply sweeping the floor. Experienced Volt owners over at GM-Volt.com suggested it’s best to replace the outlet we will use for charging. Nothing special, just a standard 110 volt outlet but a new and good quality outlet will assure an efficient connection between the car charger and the power source. Additionally I learned it’s best to charge the Volt from an electrical circuit which is not shared by other items that take a strong draw, such as a spare refrigerator or freezer that might be in the garage. No problem for us.
The good news is that our dealer tells us the car has reached Nashville, waiting for a full transport truck load to head our way! It should be here any day now!
