My dad had starting problems on his Chevy pickup when it was humid outside. He'd take off the distributer and clean off the points and it would start. Eventually that didn't work anymore. Turns out he had a cracked coil. Most of the time it was fine, or at least good enough so that clean points would make up for it.

My version of regenerative braking is called "bump starting".

1 Year Avg (Every Mile Traveled) = 47.8 mpg
