Smart or Dumb Question re checking oil
We've had our Smart since February and love it. Glad to join the club. Uh, has anyone checked their oil? The dip stick has hash marks on the tip and an"F" which on a regular car would mean Full. The booklet says the oil should be midway between the two "bumps" on the stick which is about a foot or so past the "F". This would seem to be a typo. If not then perhaps we have just ruined our engine.
Also, I hear synthetic oil is better. Any comments?
