Here in the hills of SW VA, I'm getting 38-40mpg. Not as good as the Prius that uses regular gas but much more of a fun factor.

In dog years, I'm dead!

I tow my smart 4 wheels down. My smarts are early grey market cars and I built my own tow bar and attachments.

The Penske import smarts sold currently can be towed with either a Blue Ox or Roadmaster base plate. They get low to mid 40s mpg depending how spirited your driving style. They tow great and more importantly they are an absolute ball to drive.

Cheers, Dan

My levelling jacks controller box

Here is a photo that I finally remembered to take for you. It is located to the left of the steering wheel, just under the dash. Does not work at the moment and our jacks are wired up. The green power light was on but nothing worked--we had to manually get them loose to tie them up out of the way to get home to Detroit. The mobile RV guy is coming out tomorrow but he warned me it might take a long time to find the issue. I think that's code for "this is gonna cost you."
Good luck.
