Mind you, I have nearly double the engine displacement.
Sooooo (if I did my math correctly), if you swapped in the Smart ForTwo's diesel engine (0.8 liter turbodiesel), then you'd be doing 2000 miles before reimbursing the oil companies again

But then, "3 people in 2 don't know math".

Seriously, I tried hard to break 1000mi. in a diesel, so 500mi. in a gasser isn't bad
