You can't help it at first. It can be confusing and distracting at first.

Now I just drive it like a regular car ...other than plugging it in every night.
This was a good tip and I appreciate your sharing this. Today, after reading your post, I too drove without being fixated at all the info on the panel.

I'm still having a hard time with trying to figure out how to set "FAVS" on my XM Radio... I'll just have to find a cool afternoon under the shade of a tree, and drink a very cold glass of tea as I sit in the Volt reading the manual...

I used to pick things ip fairly quickly, but the diagnosis of MS for me seems to be "Mostly Slow" these days.

I also have to admit "Mostly Slow" applies to me hypermiling as I commute between my two farms, nearly 50 miles apart, totally on electric with now gasoline needed.

Today, I was able to use my news SPC X-press 240 quick charger I instaled at "Farm B" and I was totally charged in exactly 3 hours. Amazing
