I have a question I have yet to find an answer to. I live in Ohio currently the temperatures overnight all right around 20 degrees. The GOM on my car is showing right around 175 miles at 100% charge. My question is I have roughly a 150 mile round trip to work. I work for the railroad so once I get to work my car will be left unplugged and overnight for roughly 24 hours before I'll get back in it to drive home. I have no ability to plug in while at work and there is not a single level 2 or fast charger on the route home. Is there any type of battery drain from conditioning while the car is left unplugged? I've been driving my Volt for the last month to and from work as I've been unsure of whether or not I can make the round trip comfortably. I would love to be able to take my Bolt but haven't pressed my luck.
