By now, if you're interested enough in the Volt, you've probably already heard about the fanpage on facebook. But what you might not know is who the other fans are.
The good news is the other fans seem to be as interested in the Volt as you are. The better news is some of them really do know what they're talking about. I/L points out "at least a few of the fans appear to be well-informed employees of GM or supplier firms or otherwise involved in the Volt's development."
Autobloggreen pulled out this question and answer that fully support that:
One fan asked about what happens to "summer gas" that might sit in the gas tank all the way until winter. Phil (from GM) posted a response by Andrew Farah, the Volt's chief engineer, who said that:For me, this has been a big question, and I'm glad to see the answer from someone who appears to be either working on it, or knows that the groups is working on it.
In order to meet strict evaporative emissions requirements the Volt has a fully sealed fuel system. This will cause the fuel to age slower. The real issue is seasonal fuel blends that can affect starting and driveability as outdoor temperatures change. Rest assured, we'll have a solution by launch.
