I am NOT happy about the lack of mileage my little smartcar is getting right now! I can’t figure out what’s going on with it. It was getting around 40mpg, but last time and this time, the mileage was just HORRIBLE!
The only thing I can think of is that someone is stealing gas from my little car. The gas cap doesn’t lock, and it probably wouldn’t be hard to do. The only other thing I can think of is that running the air conditioner is really messing with the mpg. I wouldn’t think it would knock it down almost 8mpg from what it was though!
I’m going to start parking in my garage from now on and locking the garage doors. I will know if stealing was the issue the next time I fill up!
271.9 miles ÷ 8.268 gallons = 32.885mpg! NOT ACCEPTABLE!
