THey why didn't you post links?C'mon you guys! The same questions and revelations will be posted over and over as new people arrive at different stages of Smart ownership. This is how an active car forum works.
When we quit getting input from our new people we are done as a viable, useful site.
If you've heard it before and want to post, fine... Give the poster some links, or pass along your special knowledge of the subject.
No Knock is the best policy for handling repeat questions. A2Jack.
Fine Ill do it again, I just hate having 3 conversations at the same time about the same thing that has no resolution.

Here is an interesting one
2009 Smart Passion
Yet it seems it is completly contradicted by the events in this post08 EPA Mileages:
5-Speed Autotic Manual (City/Highway): 34/40
- Crankcase (qt.): 3.5 incl. oil filter
- Required Fuel: Premium Unleaded recommended
- Coolant System (qt.): 4.5.
- Fuel Tank: 10 gallon – 8.7 with 1.3 gal. Reserve
This is embarrassing.
I ran out of gas for the first time in my life. In my smart! But I learned that the digital countdown of the last gallon is incredibly accurate.
Somehow I didn’t notice the gauge until it was reading 0.1 gallons. I immediately headed for the nearest station. The reading went to 0.0 gallons. The car sputtered to a stop about a hundred yards later.
It took 8.7 gallons to fill the tank.
