I'm surprised that the smart crowd hadn't discovered the SG prior to this (if I read your earlier post correctly).

Anyway - nice to hear you're equipped. Have fun & report back!

Indeed, the smart diesel doesn't use fuel when coasting... !!!

...which more than makes up for for not putting in an auto-stop or kill switch, which isn't really a good idea on a turbo'd diesel, as you want the turbo to cool down before shutting the engine off.

I do turn the engine off after 15 seconds of being stopped, as long as I have 15 seconds more before I need to go - like when there is a train obviously.

You guys just wait til I get my skinnies back on the car and boost the PSI...

skinnies back on and PSI set at 44

seems I can get 70 mpg US in day to day driving, mixed hwy + city + suburban... partly due to using Scanguage. I loved it so much, I've got a bulk purchase going, and already 35 units are ordered for Canadian smart owners. I'm going to get more in, and have some leftover... under $200 Canadian if anyone from Canada is interested.

Hi smartzuuk!

Keep the MPG up, because I'm not doing my part for fuel economy.....
