another smart cdi owner
smartzuuk referred me to this place. I am not a hard-core MPG guy like him, but I do enjoy my smart, and I will be getting a ScanGauge for Xmas, so I am given to understand.....
I've had the car for two years now, and the lifetime fuel consumption has been 60.6 US MPG, over 55,500 km.
My smart is a convertible, and it has wide tires (175/55-15 on the front and 195/50-15 on the rear). These make the car handle a lot better and raise the ESP intervention threshold, but do add somewhat to the fuel consumption. I run them at about 30 PSI.
In good weather, the soft top is always down, which sucks for FE but is totally a great feeling. I don't drive with much of an eye on fuel economy these days, though the ScanGauge may change that. I nearly always have the heate seats on the "high" setting, and I use A/C frequently (not with the top down though).
It's a great car, fun to drive and I will still have it in 20 years......
