05 Mercedes SmartCar

Had someone ask to day I could not help them so I'll ask the pro's. Anyone know the R134a system capacity for this matchbox?

Tim!

I am shocked that your MOD doesn't have this info

We haven't been successful in getting service info from Smart yet. Also, if this car is really an 05, it is a Canadian model Diesel, so the refrigerant capacity could be different from the gasoline models we get in the states.

Maybe Karl or Dave can come up with something.

You have to open the matchbox and look for a sticker on the inside.

I found this spec

TRB,

Looks like I edited about the time you posted, did you get the refrigerant specs?

The little drag racer is just little car/big engine fun (think Vega or S-10 with a 350). Not practical, just fun.

I would not want one in my garage either (unless it ran like that).

Ha.. Those little Smarties are a hoot round towns... They were designed to be picked up at railway stations and Airports for commuters to use for nipping in to the cities... easy to park and easy to repair panel damage (Usefull if you are driving in Milan or Paris) They are good for what they were designed for but can't understand where they could be used in the US...

When out target practicing they work very well. After all its best not to use paper targets anymore. Save a tree shot a Smart Car!

Ha! they're too small for you unless you used a shot gun ..... I suppose you could buy a yellow one and wear it as a motorised high viz vest .... Get used to small cars... Fiat are busy buying General Motors....

Now I may not be a marksmen! But I can hit that POS car without too much trouble. Now if there were a socialist European in it I may even try a little harder!

Karl if all the other vehicles around me were of the same size. I would not really car too much about driving one of these little vehicles. But when the shopping cart at the grocery store is as big as the car your driving, and the semi truck is still transporting food on the same road, I'll stick to my little Toyota Tacoma!

When driving a smart car, do you have to send a telegram when you want to pass the car in front of you?

Now, that's funny!!!

Ha! When do you get to overtake in nose to tail traffic all travelling at a walking pace... The Smart will be parked up whilst the big boys car is still looking for a parking space.. Toyota have done a similar sized city car called the IQ so they are catching on...

The little smartie is quite a robust little thing as the metalwork forms a tough cage round it, kinds like a roll cage in a competition car.... Trick round her is to use those clever glass panels and look where you are going so that you dont drive in to any trucks..

Karl I'm not worried about my driving. It's others on the road which concern me, especially in if I were in that child's toy.
