sixcrows, my car has a 10 gallon tank, but I won't go into the reasons why since you said you've already read the other threads on the topic. My 2 cents worth, and many think it's not even worth that.

I think I started one of the earlier imfamous threads.

To be frank, it's a bit endearing that we still haven't put this issue to bed.

Maybe we can just take a vote!!! Whatever the majority decides is the answer!!!

Sometimes I think we forget that people post partly because they want to be part of the community, engage in the discussion. It's more fun and more enlightening then going back and reading a discussion that other people had some time ago.


Live and let post - that's my motto!


BTW -- I have no idea the true capacity of my fuel tank.
Come to think of it, of all the cars I've ever owned, I've never known this or cared to know.

For the smart, I drive roughly 300+ some miles, pump in roughly 7 - 8'ish something gallons of gas, pay the man and move along.

I think the official web site at Smart Car of America - Smart ForTwo Passion says it's a 10 gallon tank, including 1.3 gallon reserve.

That's this (unofficial) site; smart USA.com shows it as (for the umpteenth time): Fuel tank capacity (reserve) 8.7 gal (includes 1.3 gal reserve)

Y'know what? I am still surprised every time somebody gets so irritated by revisited topics. Quite frankly, I found myself surprised to STILL be driving with 0.0 gallons of fuel, so I shared this on the forum.

Then, I get hit with this "HOW DARE YOU POST THIS AGAIN" mentality. Jesus Christ, if you don't like the post, just close the window. What the hell are these people so pissed off about? Is it the three seconds out of their lives it took to read my post, and then the additional 10 seconds it took them to spout off about it?

It makes posting to this forum FAR less fun than it was when I started here several months ago. I have to try to remember that some members have been very kind and helpful and have actually made driving my car more fun and economical. I suppose the occasional grouchy, self-appointed forum cop shouldn't detract from my enjoyment of this website.

Repeat after me: "It just doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter since the rich kids get all the nice looking girls."
There, don't we all feel better?
People read the tech stuff for information. People write here to connect with others. Both activities are valuable and honorable.
This is a very nice site. I guess that's a compliment to you guys (male and female). Like our little cars there is no reason why we cannot be both competent and fun.

Sounds like 9.9 gallons or 33 liters.

Now I just have to get my ScanGauge to understand. It either tells me my fill up was 25 gallons or 2.3 gallons when the pump says 7. Operator error I suspect.

No, I wasn't upset by your post.
I just used the reply button in your post to post my own message.

No harm done!
