    It is easy to tell by examining high pressure pump. CP1 or CP3?

    When I get that far in I will let you know.

    There is too much forced contortion-ism owning a smart car without going looking for reasons to deform myself.

    Quality went downhill with the introduction of the SAM in the Mk 7 Smart 450.

    The "Distance to empty" trip computer function in a 454 ForFour is just as hilarious. In one mile, driven carefully, I lost about 10 miles of distance.

    I'm thinking that at about 118 miles you developed a fairly fast fuel leak!!!

    Interestingly, this tank... first blob 115, 2nd at 130, 3rd at 160, still waiting for the 4th to go at 215. Maybe this tank I'll finally get 450 miles!!

    Whoot whoot. I took the Xtrons bag of rubbish double DIN radio out and stuck the standard Smart one from the other car in.

    It seems I now have a bass bin under the drivers seat so I can now have a heated vibrating hot bum instead of just having a hot one.

    It's hard to keep any vacuum when your wastegate pipe looks like this:
