I discovered recently how important it is to keep the fuse box on a car clean and the fuses in good condition. The MB cars have a round flat tool case good for the Benz car arrangement, but for the smart it would need to be fastened some how. Either way, Mercedes always includes fuses in a plastic box with fuse installer/puller.

What kind of fuses -- even relays- are good to have handy for a smart?

Volvos use several amperages of fuse and a paperclip to jump the fuel relay.

What would smart want/need/use?

I wouldn't bother since I've never had a problem with either on three 451s over 11 years. Just pick the most common fuses if you want to. ?

Most of the fuses are ATM, with a few main fuses being ATC.

I recommend buying the BUSSMANN ATMIDSK on Rock Auto.
Has six each of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 amp light up fuses..
All the way at the bottom of the fuses...

The ATM fuses are here...
But this is overkill.
There are only a few ATC fuses, so you are better off buying them individually..

The 40 amp ATC fuse can be hard to find...

The 7 and 1/2 ATM and ATC can be found easily...
