@  Mike T : (25 February 2015 - 10:12 PM) All you need is a good thermostat which seems to be a crap shoot.

@  FlossyTheSmart : (13 February 2015 - 11:09 AM) Not everyone has been around since the upgrade though. I thought the "shoutbox - chat with members" title would help, but we still occasionally get people "searching" in the shoutbox :P

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.
