"I do not see what your complaining about. I get exactly what the EPA says you should get - 36MPG. My driving is about 1/3 city and 2/3 highway (stop and go highway). Its a 15 mile round trip. My old 2001 chev metro 4 cylinder 1.3 liter, got only…"

"By Gas only I mean not a Hybrid and all the environmental damage those batteries bring to the world. And when you really look at it, the smart tops almost all hybrids except the prius and one or two more"

"Jim, are you really sure your mile per gallon calculations from Europe are that accurate? I've seen people make very wide mpg claims about just the smart here in the US. A couple of tanks of fuel in liters per kilometer or whatever may not…"
