Real world mileage -Are specs correct?
Is Smart purposely understating the average mpg or l/100km in their specs?
I recall Hyundai low-balling the MPG on several of their models which ended up settling with a class action lawsuit, owners ended up getting a prepaid credit card for each year they own the car (my daughter is one).
I'm asking because I have a friend who has a 2014 Smart Pure, on a full tank, one passenger, he can make it from Burlington to Parry Sound and back. He's no speed demon and drives "mildly". I can certainly see a diesel doing this, too bad that is no longer an option for new Smart's, but realistically, what do you think about Smart's mileage ratings? What do you think a typical tank of good fuel will get you? Very broad question, people drive different, city versus hwy, temperatures, etc. But is there an appreciable average?
