Reduce ERDTLT

I learned something new after 1.5 years driving the Volt. It must be the cold weather that made me figure it out. You can be all over the Internet and not find this unless you specifically run a search for it.
In temps 26 degrees or colder, use Comfort Mode in the climate settings. The gas engine will only turn on initially and then you can use all electric for the remainder of your EV range. It is supposed to work better with the fan set on low, also it only works on 2012 and 2011 Volts. The newer Volts may not need this trick as much since they can be set to run ERDTLT at a lower temperature of 15 degrees.
