"Through careful testing, I have determined that there are still between two and three gallons left in the tank when the gauge says it is empty.  On long car trips, I just go an extra eighty or so miles (tracked by resetting the trip guage);…"

"I've found that if you put the gas in as slow as possible you can get more into the tank. It will shut off several times but I watch to make sure I'm not going over 7gallons, when I'm down on the last gallon. I've also started to…"

"So, I also have a 2016 and have the same issue with the fuel gauge. I can never get more than 4.5 gallons in the tank and on this last fill up I have gone through 1/2 the tank with only 86 miles on the trip OD. Seems to be an issue the…"

"I asked a guy that has some videos of his 2016 Smart posted on YouTube.  He said he had the problem, but his dealer fixed it.  Said all they had to do is recalibrate it.  So maybe it all depends on the dealer.  He said since the…"

"This is going to really lower the customer satisfaction rating with Consumer Reports on the new Smart.  It really sucks.  I love the looks of the new car, but just nervous to buy one now.  "
