About time this competition heats up. General Motors said yesterday that Volt extended-range electric vehicle, (not due until 2011), would achieve a fuel rating of 230 miles a gallon in city driving.

A few days ago a competitor in the field, Nissan, boasted that its electric vehicle, the Leaf, would get 367 mpg. The Leaf is supposed to be available next year.

And, don’t forget that Volkswagen claims it will be selling a few of its gas-powered VW-1L that the company claims to get 285 mpg (and trigger the most ├╝ber-cool design sighs).

Don’t forget – your actual mileage may vary.
