  1. Since my 08 smart Passion is still new, 2,800 miles on the clock I didn't want to run it bone dry but with 0.4 gal flashing I went to the petrol station and filled it up with exactly 8.7 gallons. I do fill it slightly more than the first auto shut off but not as much to where it is sitting in the top of the gas cap area. In my opinion it is an 8.7 gal tank including reserve with any extra in the filler pipe which looks to be about 0.4 to 0.5 gal. I suppose if a person REALLY wanted an exact quantity the best way would be to remove the fuel tank completely and manually fill it with a calibrated graduated beaker to say precisely how much the fuel tank holds.I don't think it would be good to run the car past 0.0 for ANY length of time. Just think that 0.0 is 0.0 fuel left and start looking for a petrol station when it starts flashing 1.0 gal

  2. I come here almost every day but don't post everyday. I read what interest me then move on to SCOA and other smart forums "do the same thing there". Yes I agree that it seems to me that SCOA is more commercially and monetarily orientated and yes it does have more active 451 base of people. The forum at SCOA is more restrictive in it's setup for it's membership and offers perks when paid for 'there' that I get here for free. The best thing that I can say about CsC is that it is for people who truly love the smart for what it is and a friendly bunch of folks who are always willing to help other smart enthusiasts with no strings attached.A lot of information can be found here that is related to the 451 and at SCOA members are basically going through the same growing pains and enthusiasm that members of CsC did. One thing I would like to see changed here is the forum structure between the 450 and the 451 I'm not sure what that change should be but I do think a change is needed.I like it here at CsC it's just more like 'Home Sweet Home". Now if the 451 population came here then...... :)

  3. small update

    pun intended.

    soon oh so very soon... I went back to the smartcenter VirginiaBeach on May 23, 2008 to purchase some accessories. I was told that the date of arrival changed yet again to the 26th of May 2008. Evidently as I know from driving semi trucks in the past, sometimes it's difficult to predict exactly when the driver will arrive at it's destination but also from what I have been told is that once you get a date from the smartcenter dealership it is pretty accurate so... any day now.

    I will post pictures of my smart soon after I put all those accessories on it and it is ready for public display and then I hope to coordinate some activities with fellow smarts here in the HamptonRoads area and whomever else would like to attena some sort of smart get together. Stay tuned.
