2012 Chevrolet Volt For Sale in Oklahoma: Performance Review
The main power source for this 2012 Chevrolet Volt for sale in Oklahoma

Premium fuel is specified for the 9.3 gallon tank. Manufacturer mileage rating is 95 mpg, with independent test results of 25 – 50 miles per full 120 volt or 240 volt charge, and 33 mpg gasoline. The 1-speed direct drive transmission and electric speed proportional steering combine for a smooth ride.
