"I was at 26,000 when I traded up to an 09 and would have had a lot more if I hadn't changed jobs. Ran into a guy at a gas station who had an old Canadian diesel with lots of miles on it. It really is a great car with a great engine."

"The dealer will gladly sell you the filter you need. I have a shop in town that practically does mine for free because they love having the car there! The owner bought one for his daughter in college after I showed up!"

"shouldn't have any warranty issues just by changing the oil yourself. I think even most dealers recommend changing the oil at least once prior to the 10,000 mile checkup. First changed mine at 5,000 miles. Took it to the dealer for my 10,000…"

I have had my Smart for 4 months and have 9,000 miles on it. Share some of your high mileage stories with me. How long will these little boogers run? If I change my own oil will I have warranty problems?

"I've had my smartie for 3 weeks now. I got 41.3 from the first tank of gas and 42.8 from the second tank fill. I think this is great mileage from a non-hybrid car."

LeMayzingSmartie commented on Tom Robertson's blog post Mileage
"Tom, I've found that highway driving doesn't improve the mileage tremendously--the smart is not very streamlined, so there's a lot of air to push out of the way at higher speeds."

Tom Robertson commented on Tom Robertson's blog post Mileage
"To answer my own question-after two tanks of gas--41.7 in first and 42.05 in second. Second tank was mostly town driving. I don't baby her, but I don't drive agressively either. Next tank will be 100% freeway--anxious to see what she can…"

"What kind of driving are you doing? I don't do any of the "hypermiling" tricks, but I do drive conservatively, and I will shift to neutral to coast to stop lights and signs. I had been getting 39-40mpg in 50/50 mixed highway/city…"

Smart Madness offers a red "decal" to cover the dash, cup holder, steeringwheel center, and armrest. Has anybody purchased and installed these? If so, how satisfied with the product and the difficulty of instalation. Thanks. Tom

Welcome aboard! My folks are in Winston Salem! There appear to be a number of Smarts over there. I believe you have a group or two there as well. Not too many over here as there are no dealers in the immediate vicinity, within 2 hours driving time anyway.
Mpg improves with polishing in of the engine up to about 5000 miles so I hear on these web sites.
