    Hi Guys,

    My friend snapped this picture near Ottawa - yes that Volt has a gas generator attached to it...

    Just curious - I'm not extremely technical... but does this make any sense to you guys?

    Only if there is a problem with the onboard ICE, and he needs to get somewhere....... or... maybe he's just a redneck:tongue:

    edit: The cables are going to the interior of the car, not the charge port or engine bay.... What the heck!
