1 Year With A 2009 Smart Fortwo Pure

It's now been a year with a 2009 smart fortwo pure, the only option was air-con. Cheap transportation. 11,000 kilometres, averaging 6.4L/100km in mostly city driving, 1 service that was free, basically not a single problem. A complete rundown of the year we've had together at GoodCarBadCar.net.

"Fuel tank is 33 litres capacity that includes the 28 litres "normal full" and the 5 litres reserve. Or to put it another way: after using 28 litres the gauge will flip into reserve display showing how the last 5 litres is being used. There…"

DRIVING ON EMPTY

Y'all, what's the most number of litres (or gallons, please specify imperial or U.S.) you've ever put in your 451? I was reading 3.0L remaining when I added 29 gallons last week. I once added 29.87 in October. Had I already dipped into the 5L reserve or did I have 3.13 litres remaining + the 5L reserve?

"My '09 fortwo PURE is now getting 49.6 UK MPG. That's with about 2400 kilometres on the odometer. My overall mileage for the 2 months I've had the car is over 45 UK MPG. This has been with air-conditioning on 75-90% of the time and a…"

"A'right. 5.8L/100km has been my best so far. Although I'm feeling okay about 6.1 in the city."

Ian Pellant replied to Timothy Cain's discussion BRAND NEW SMART FUEL EFFICIENCY
"smart fuel consumption is more variable than expected. From my own 2008 pulse 1.0 L with turbo; hot climate, aircon always on: 6.1 lhk is about the norm for city driving without idling at the lights too long 6.6 lhk is city tops when stuck at the…"

BRAND NEW SMART FUEL EFFICIENCY

My Canadian-model fortwo Pure with the 1.0L is getting 6.2L/100km. I'm detailing it at http://www.fuelthesmart.blogspot.com. they say it's gonna steadily improve, which i think it already has slightly. is it true, though?

Timothy Cain replied to SATO's discussion 2010 DIESEL... US?
"Contrasting the old CDI model that was available in Canada with the newer and cheaper gas car apparently defeats the efficiency gains of the diesel because of its much higher maintenance requirements. So people had to pay more for it and pay more to…"

mr bad example replied to Timothy Cain's discussion '09 SMART FORTWO PURE REVIEW
"the thing is, you can drive the smart with the throttle floored, never lift your foot and still shift, lifting the throttle tells the smart you aren't wanting to accelerate. also the smart has the stiffest suspension of any car i have driven in…"

Timothy Cain replied to Timothy Cain's discussion '09 SMART FORTWO PURE REVIEW
"The point wasn't suggesting the fortwo couldn't shift with the throttle floored but that manually tinkering your own style results in smoother operation. and centre of gravity or not, taller cars aren't supposed to be as stable…"
