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.
