Gas station visits are especially interesting in a Trabant. More often than not, I'm approached by someone either ex-military with great stories or a former East German who tells me their first car was a Trabant or their parents still have one in the garage back home. There is sometimes some embarrassment on their part to admit it though which of course I don't share. After all, I drive one in the US. Which, by the way, used to get a lot more snickers than today with gas prices the way they are. As with any mini car, one of the first questions asked by people is, '"How much mileage does it get?" But Trabis really get ...Smiles per gallon.
