|peter2772000||I don't care what the mileage is, I saw pics of a guy who was literally chopped in half after he rear-ended a truck with a Smart. Other than a boot-around vehicle for in town, no thanks for me.|

|Mike Ti||Canada got smart cdis in 2005 and 2006 model years only. Driven gently they will top 70 US MPG overall (lifetime MPG). Driven very gently, 80+ MPG US is possible. I've driven two of them for 400,000 km and the lifetime average of one was over 60 US MPG and the other about 59. The 59 MPG car is very heavily modified with 50% more power than stock.|

From what I read the Smarts of early 2000's did not make 60 mpg, even they weight like 1/3 what E does.
Would love to hear update what 2015 or 2018 Smart diesel does, but that is more out of curiosity as I have too many cars already and the 60 mpg E is a keeper.

|jzchen||Kajtek1, if your E-Class Diesel is getting 60 MPGs, imagine what a tiny smart diesel will do! Sorry to read you weren’t able to snag it!!!|

Some follow up on the research I did couple years ago on buying diesel to CA.
It turn out pretty much doable as I've got letter from MB of Canada that the car confirms to USA federal laws and the only issue was recalibration kph to mph.
But I was trying to buy the car from Canadian who was vacationing in US with his motorhome and by the time he was on his way back to Ontario.
Still process is not fully guarantee till you do it as you have to deal with 3 government agencies who each have their own rules and don't communicate with each other.
Now I bought E250 Bluetec who delivers 60 mpg on highway or close to 40 mpg in the city, so buing Smart for fuel saving lost its edge.

I saw one here in Southern California. Seems like the person finally gave it up....

My reply 18 months ago still seats on top of the page.
Not much traffic here.
But here is another try.
I am considering buying diesel Smart from Canada.
Before calling DMV, anybody has experience with registering diesel in California, or at least in USA?
Also how do you value those cars?
No KBB, nor edmunds have Smarts in the menu.

Not so when you support your body with Jelly.
When Hummers got on private marked, they got gasoline engines as military diesel was not too powerful.
Than some fans took them to Baja, Mexico for desert racing and the cars did not make it to first fueling station.
