"Good result; one instance where the extended warranty paid off.  The air injection valve can be replaced as a DIY, and there's one as well to keep the blower motor going a little longer.  Getting both done for $100 is pretty good."

"Did they check the gas cap seal?  Not sure what year your car is - does it have the loose gas cap warning light?  Also, did they find any OBD codes associated with the CEL?"

Sorry to say our Smart Car is FOR SALE! We love it.....However it was not a SMART (smiles) move. As our primarily use is as a tow car behind an RV. When we visit or travel with a grand child or friends, it presents a problem due to the size. It is a great tow car otherwise. It towes with 4 on the ground, it's light weight makes it easier to tow which also reduces gas consumption on the RV.
