Gas Mileage

Posted on September 28, 2008 at 7:43am 11 Comments

Help! I am only getting, at best, 28 mpg. I do most of my travel in city but I keep reading that many of you are getting close to 40 mpg and many of you in a variety of conditions. I have gone without AC, aired the tires, tried both using automatic and manual, use premium gas I just can't even get it to 30. Any other ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated? Even with this gas mileage I still love my car.

Hi Deb!

My name is natty and I see you're from So. Cal too (I'm originally from O.C). :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from my home state to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University in NY. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

Hi Deb,

I got 40 driving home from the city of Boston Ma to Cape Cod, since not getting on the highway again only driving to work and home I get around 34 or 35...what type of gas are you putting in? I have used the middle grade but a friend told me I actually would get more per gallon if I used the lowest going to give it a shot this week!

Thanks for the reply to my Smart on Santorini blog. I am in Arizona, but the only dealer right now is in Phoenix - 4 hours away. In September one is supposed to be opening on the west side of Las Vegas (2 hours away). So, if I don't get close to one before then, I'll definitely be over to see them in Las Vegas. As I only discovered them a month or so ago, I'm way, waaaay down the list. I guess it is good that I have a wait because I can't decide what color I want. Right now I'm favoring the blue. Kate
