@  Kyle09TC : (14 November 2015 - 12:55 PM) had a previous problem like that. I pulled all the electrical connectors and used dielectric grease, and repaired a wire and all was good. also good to lubricate the clutch actuator while you're at it

@  Mike T : (13 November 2015 - 10:34 PM) Probably chafed wiring near the intercooler scoop.
@  PAT : (13 November 2015 - 09:36 PM) Has anybody an idea of why the dash indicater of what gear you are in would go blank when stopping?? I had to restart the car to get it in gear again. I would like to know what the problem is.
@  Mike T : (12 November 2015 - 02:48 PM) I think Frank ("Alex") kind of lost his marbles towards the end.
@  aibo : (12 November 2015 - 01:09 PM) I think it was pretty good until the domain name issue. There were a couple attempts to "re-create" the community but without much success. I am glad that I found this group! The EV community is pretty small in Canada. Smart ED community is even smaller!
@  Mike T : (12 November 2015 - 12:44 PM) Woah that was a long time ago! It's better here.
@  marchanna : (12 November 2015 - 08:41 AM) Haha. Yup. It's a small world
@  aibo : (12 November 2015 - 07:35 AM) Hi everyone, I am new here but I do recognize some of names (e.g. Mike T, marchanna, etc) from the old old MB Canada forum(s)!

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.
