  1. In Canada, that's a fairly good deal for $60 if you need the data. I actually don't take to watching video on a 2 inch screen, so, I have no need for more than about 2 gig every 90 days.... I have a prepaid plan with Public Mobile which is $114 every 90 days ($38 a month) which gives me unlimited in province calling, unlimited text, and 6 gigs of data to use whenever I want in the 90 days.... unused does NOT carry over.... I usually waste 4.5 gigs every 90 days..... And for the next 5 years, the rate will go down $1.00 per year to as low as $33 a month in the end! The data is 4G You can get more 3G data for less if you really want, but I don't need the data.....

  3. You ought to visibly fill fuel to the very top of the filler tube, that will net you at least 2 litres more than just filling to the click. None of this will change your real world mileage of course. For that, adjust the nut behind the wheel. Shift at 2500 RPM, don't go over 85 kmh, run at 1800 rpm whenever possible.... anticipate lights. There's a hundred threads in here on how to eke out better economy from a cdi. My AC is blowing nice and cold in a 2006, and FWIW, I also have power steering in my Canada1, which was available in the configurator at the dealer for orders - I don't recall it showing in the online configurator however. But it was an option. The original two cars ordered by TFM and Xandria (who own this site still) had power steering! http://akasa.ca/smart/ Remember that site??!!!!!
  4. Well, I am not sure that the host would automatically e-mail anyone if there was an issue, but I assume something happened with the host.
  5. News to me, just reading this now.
  6. Wow, that yellow 451 is a tad strange! Well, to each their own. I LIFTED 451! And ran taller tires on it as well! And it ran like a champ between Abbotsford and Prince George all one winter with no failures or issues at all. That was a fun little car! Thanks goodness TPM solved the shifter/tranny issue in it properly! New owner in Nanaimo somewhere about 5 years ago. Wonder has anyone ever seen the car mid island. Blue on black pure coupe, 08.
  7. Put a two day permit on the canada1 coupe for today and Saturday and went driving all over Abbotsford and Chilliwack. Will do an oil change before putting it back into the underground garage for the winter months. Really enjoyed my time in it today. 107,000 ish kms. Will head to Vancouver Saturday. On another note, I have two people in Ontario who have expressed interest in the car. I am not sure where this will lead for sure. Coupe is far left in picture. I previously owned the car on the far right as well.
  8. http://nationalpost.com/news/politics/ottawa-looking-at-15-per-cent-ethanol-blend-in-gasoline
  9. I'd have thrown this topic into another forum, except I actually hope we can stick to my preferred interest on this one, which is the effect of ethanol on gasoline ICE and the newer DI type engines in particular If we raise the permitted blend percentage to a maximum of E15, will more people try to avoid buying Canadian gas, or buy a higher Octane blend such as Chevron 94 which has ZERO ethanol?
  10. Wondering if those in the Lower Mainland who still have smarts are interested in a possible meet-up in the near future? I still have a canada1 and can put a permit on it for a couple days driving.... preferably without snow, seeing as this a garaged summer only car!
  11. This is impressive! We'll sure be looking forward to seeing yours on the road at some point!
  12. Sweet pics! I'll have to dust off a few of my photos and get them uploaded!
  13. You cannot do clutch relearns with a simple diagnostic scan tool. Depending where you are located, there may be a member with the right software installed and experience doing this.
  14. I have updated the Staff Directory for CsC to reflect the current list of Directors, website owner, smart142 (Glenn) and have included MikeT as an honourary member, as he is also one that is usually able to help steer someone to the right person/place if need be. I'm not actually sure anyone really uses the directory, but here it is: http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?/staff/ It's found under the banner image at the top of the page under SITE INFO All that said - we are in need of tidying up access/permissions and I am in the process of checking to see who is actually still functioning as a moderator. Moderator access has been removed from most former and now dormant member accounts... We hope to add a couple of moderators in the near future who can help keep the sight tidy.
  15. Your wish has been granted.
  16. Hey everyone, I have instituted a 60 minute time limit for regular members to edit their content. This is plenty of time for editing mistakes, errors, bad spelling, a momentary lapse in judgment, etcetera... After 60 minutes - it's here to stay - you will not be able to 'delete' your posts.
  17. As posted in the other thread discussing this issue, the reason for this change is so that we can avoid having a repeat of incidents where a user throws a little temper tantrum hissy fit and purges all of their content. Like cadillacman did recently, for which Bill is now banned permanently, including the last known IP addresses. If we are able, the content will be restored. And if not, that's unfortunate that one person has ruined so many topics by removing most of their 927 posts. Two big thumbs down Bill, if you have managed to gain access and get in here to read.
  18. And, having now just seen the extent of the edits, the person and IP addresses will be banned. Our webmaster is MIA - there might be a way to undo all of the edits - but I am not certain. BTW - there historically were time limits placed on editing. Unlimited is not going to be an option. If 60 minutes is too short, we could look at 12 hours or maybe 24 hours, but it will not be left open to these kinds of abuses. Anyway, going to ban member and IP addresses now.
  19. Actually, I did answer
  20. and here are two images inserted from 'existing attachments', and I should point out, the existing attachments are ones you have previously uploaded to CsC.... so if you have only been using the 'insert other media' option, then yes, you might have wondered how to get a new image on the site! this is a nice way to repost a photo you previously uploaded - it also shows up with a smaller image in the post, which will enlarge when you click on it, at least on a PC... no idea what this stuff all does on mobile devices.... lol and yes, btw, that is all 4 canada1 cars from several years ago in Port Moody BC! I owned the red cabriolet with the crossblade wheels at the time, but have since sold it, and now own the red coupe on the far left... the other photo is of the cabrio in my underground parking and our two subarus of the day (still have the legacy sedan 6 speed CVT, my daily driver now is a Mazda CX-5 6 speed manual - so all three vehicles are 6 speeds!)
  21. here's are files uploaded via 'choose files'
  22. I think you could also use the 'insert other media' option. which offers you to choose from an 'existing attachment' or to 'insert image from url' Have you always been hosting images elsewhere??
