Here is my rule, never use max or recirculating when smoking. Don't use the ash tray, crack a window when you smoke and throw the butts out. If you live in a dry area put them in a plastic bottle with a screw on cap then discard properly. I just sold a car that I drove for almost 10 yrs.- smoked in it every day. The person who bought it asked me if had been smoked in? I said see for yourself. 20 years in the car business and this is probably the best thing I have learned.

If you use any of the remedies mentioned, be sure to run your a/c on MAX while fumigating. There are companies that visit the dealers who have a fog type product that works pretty good.

+1 Exactly what I was going to say.

Although I really refrain from smoking in the Mustang now. Only on the occasion. And of course no one else period.
