@  Mike T : (25 January 2016 - 07:28 PM) It's all in the name
@  cadillacman : (25 January 2016 - 06:47 PM) so is there an implication that people with ED's are having trouble getting it started ?
@  marchanna : (25 January 2016 - 06:21 PM) What about the glow plugs?
@  Mike T : (25 January 2016 - 04:27 PM) Duh they have electronic ignition
@  tolsen : (25 January 2016 - 03:56 PM) I've also been wondering if there is a good guide for replacing the points on an ED.
@  NelsonSmart : (25 January 2016 - 03:07 PM) What would a starter motor start on an ED?
@  Mike T : (25 January 2016 - 10:04 AM) Seriously?
@  tolsen : (25 January 2016 - 07:41 AM) Does the ED have a starter motor?
@  dmoonen : (23 January 2016 - 03:22 PM) Glenn should have one
@  Francesco : (22 January 2016 - 11:18 AM) the electric defrost element I mean
@  Francesco : (22 January 2016 - 11:17 AM) Yeah will check with Bernd tonight. I haven't yet checked the wires at the component, but I can tell you, ZERO heat from the element.
@  Mike T : (22 January 2016 - 07:17 AM) Get it from a European dealer....
@  Francesco : (22 January 2016 - 05:57 AM) In case anyone here was wondering, $385 in stock in Toronto. Yet another $10 part that smart thinks should cost 40x as much!
@  GRP151 : (22 January 2016 - 05:29 AM) See my latest post on key fob repair!
@  GRP151 : (22 January 2016 - 05:14 AM) key fob
@  Francesco : (21 January 2016 - 10:31 PM) Anybody know how much MB wants for the glow plug controller (aka "Pre-Glow Time Relay" or N14/2)?

Hi,1. How many kilometres would you be able to go with a full tank on your 451 Smart? 2. Does anyone keep track of the farthest they've gone on a full tank, I'd like to compare if you don't mind - My record is 400km during the winter time3. Would it be better to use gas with a lower octane percentage?

Lower octane is a good idea in very cold weather, it improves starting.
