Well, it seems to be a Canadian car, anyway... apparently an early Toyota Yaris coupe or sedan with an Ontario license plate. Pretty good in the "smallest car" theme, as it was the smallest Toyota available here at the time. Now a Scion iQ would beat that, but I haven't seen one towing.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I can tow my 21ft Bigfoot with my Kubota BX2200 diesel powered Tractor. Top speed is 15 mph but I can mow lawns along the way to pay for fuel.

Yep... They were sold in the US as the Toyota Echo. In later generations, they deemed us worthy of the "foreign sounding" Yaris nameplate.

I used to tow my Scamp with a Scion xD, which shares a lot of its underpinnings with the Yaris. It has the slightly larger 1.8 liter engine, though.

Sorry, the name history was about the same in Canada (with some messing around regarding the hatchback), so the car in the photo would have an "Echo" badge on it just as it would in the U.S.... I had the right car, wrong vintage of name!

The question of Biodiesel that was here has been moved. It is now in a Thread of its own:
Biodiesel Use

We now return to the original topic.
