    This is the third time it’s happened but this time the check engine light came on. Also is it safe to use 93 octane instead of 91? I have a 2011 Smart Fortwo
  2. smart Vehicle Marketplace
    Asking $4,500. It's a 2011 Smart Fortwo Cabriolet convertible with 46K miles. I have loved this car. FYI: Purchased in early 2014 with 17,136 miles for $10,823. So that means I've put less than 30K miles on it in 4.5 years. That's textbook low mileage usage :) FYI: Kelly Blue Book estimated...

    So… anybody have this happen? I'm driving around the city, so it's stop-n-go every block. At random (and rarely), the gas pedal does not a thing.

    Yep, 240 miles each way... One tank of gas. Filled up at the Kroger in Elkins on the way out of town. Got the Ladybug full, gas is not cheap in DC area or on interstate. Coming back there are no gas stations after turning off interstate 66 (and it was late at night) so I had to keep going...

    Uh oh, Federal Government is making moves toward E15, 85% gas, and 15% Ethanol, an increase from E10. What do y'all think, look like trouble? Web site is here... E15 (a blend of gasoline and ethanol) | Fuels & Fuel Additives | US EPA Looks like both the car and me are going to be alcohol...

    I just thought you all might like to see this. I log my MPG every time I fill. I missed a couple but I have most of them. My lowest MPG was 29.6 and My Highest was 44.2. I'm averaging 35 miles to the Gallon. The last Field is the MPG, sorry about the formatting. As you can see I usually...
