actually his situation is a microcosm of how the US is going. 2 years ago he stated he was taking at least 2-3 times a month and always using POVs and he was driving an old pickup and some trips were 200+ miles RT. he was reimbursed but had serious doubts about being able to make some of the longer trips plus he was burning a quart every other week or so.
so that is why he got the Volt. if not for that he would have gotten the LEAF or MiEV.
now, the State budget aint what it used to be so the need to use a state vehicle has been reduced along with the # of state workers and it has always been the policy that you only use your POV if a state vehicle was NA which used to be the case.
now, not so much. in fact, he states he usually has a choice of half a dozen vehicles to choose from
