"While changing my oil, I noticed a "sheen" of oil on the pan. No drips, no stains in the driveway, it just looked like the pan was wet. I got off work early and while going to my moms house in Sugar Land, I swung by the dealer for a…"
"I found that if I turn the ignition off and quickly remove the key, like I'm a jet fighter pilot trying to eject, I get the beep. Turn it off, wait a sec, pull the key, all is good.

Was it you or your missus that I saw at 290/Barker Cypress/Queensland the other day? Was a lady driving, but still, maybe you're not a manly man!! LOL! Just kidding of…"
Congratulations, Mud Pie! You're in for good times!
Have you named your little Smart yet? Just curious, you said you averaged about 40.5 mpg, was that all on the highway? I take it, you had the top down most of the time, with no air conditioner running? What was your average speed?
I've had my car since Feb. and the best I can get out of it so far is 33- 34 mpg. I took it to San Antonio last month and still only averaged 33 mpg 'cause I had the air conditioner on the whole way (it was a hot day) and drove about the speed of other traffic, 75 mph. My in-city driving is all stop and go, so 33 didn't seem unfair. I am hoping though that highway mileage will improve.
