"Well, I had a 2008 and now own a 2016. The manual for the 2016 states a capacity of 8.7 U.S. gallons usable. I do believe my 2008 offered the same amount, but it is long gone. Granted, I will not get the same milage experienced with my 2008, but…"

Hi Mainefortwo!

How are you? Cute smart...

anyways my name is natty and I've been trying to find more participants from the New England area 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. 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.

Loved the background. Nubble light. Been coming up to Maine for at least 26 years, about the time you got married. Next time I'm up, hope to see you. Wally Huntley, Illinois

hey you, mainefortwo-
I was raised in Monmouth, ME, but not before living in Cape Neddick and going to school at York Elementary and Middle Schools. Check out my page...I have a very similar photo posted. Did you have to get your smart in Boston, and do you live in Cape Neddick? My dad used to work summers in York Beach pulling taffy at the Goldenrod.

Hi Steve,

I named my passion coupe "Karl" in honor of Karl Benz, who is not only credited with inventing the automobile, but started the company that now includes manufacture of the smart fortwo.
