I was just wondering what everyone is getting on their miles per gallon. I have been averaging 45. I travel quite a lot on the freeway and am very impressed with how much I am getting. I just love my little car!!

I do mostly city driving (to work, the grocery, weekend errands) and have consistently averaged 40 mpg. Haven't used the AC much lately (Ohio), either. Rarely use automatic....love the auto-shifting.

Good call on the Fuelly list of Smarts, Robert :)

Seumas: From what i've read, it seems that the Smart get's the best gas mileage if you're around maybe 60-65 mph. They say when you get up around 70mph, it starts to drop off..... which is understandable.

With 5000 miles on the odometer, I am averaging a very consistent 40 mpg with approximately 80% highway and 20% in-town. Lowest was 38 and highest was 42. Now that I'm using the A/C, it appears it may go down a couple of mpg. Virtually all my driving is on automatic.

I average about 42 mpg. My lowest mileage was 35, my highest to date was 47.

I've seen a lot of my mileage centered around 40-42 mpg, with the occasional surprise of 44 and 45 mpg tanks now and then. Mainly around town, with a little bit of short interstate hops of 10-20 miles.

I live in New England and get about 39-40 mpg in automatic mode, no AC, local driving. For the first 3K mi it was quite a bit lower (around 35 mpg) but I was told it would improve and it did.

I live in Arizona too. I have been averaging 45 mpg, that is mostly freeway driving between 55 and 65 - 70. Here in Phoenix, it gets pretty hot (105 lately) so the A/C is running full bore. I put an average of 50 miles a day on the week days and a little more on the weekends, depending on where I go. Last week I did 120 miles in one day! Lots of area to cover here in Phoenix! I have only had my Smart a month now, and have had to fill her up about 3 times. I'm very impressed. Thanks for all the input.
