More Smart car publicity

Had an article on the smart car today in the local paper. Man When I first saw these I really wanted one. Now the more that comes out the less I like em. They have really ruined the US version. According to this article EPA is 33/41 with premium gas. That's total unacceptable in my book even if it is 12,000. Diesel would of been so easy

I'm a little disappointed in this," Fairchild said, pointing to the sticker on the windshield that claims the car gets 33 city miles per gallon by EPA standards. By comparison, an automatic Honda Civic gets 25 city miles to the gallon. "The European version got about 70 miles per gallon, but that's because it was a diesel."
