It only took my 5 days to burn through the first tank in my smart car. However, that was a lot of driving through the freeway system in and around Phoenix, AZ. First tank results = 42.3 mpg. I'll take it. Beat by more than twice what my other daily driver was doing. I purchased Gas Cubby for my iPhone, so I'll have a really solid accounting of mileage, etc, etc.
Yesterday I took it down to Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale to scoop up some after Christmas goodies. Once parked in the deck, I couldn't get out of the vehicle before a nice elderly couple came by and asked questions. I gave them the supplied literature from the smart Dealer in Chandler, and spent about 15 minutes talking about the car, showing them under the hood (not much to show), etc. Often people ask me how comfortable my smart is, probably because I'm 6'4", and when exiting the car may summon flashbacks from a Ringling Brothers clown car entrance. Hopefully I don't look too much like a clown, but it is odd to see a tall guy emerge from any small car. Last weekend, my son (6'5") and I took it for a brief trip. Didn't really stop anywhere, but I'm sure we would turn heads.
Very fun car, almost makes me want to drive to work everyday.
