Is the starter 165k miles old or 65k miles old?

165k on the original starter isn't necessarily that unusual. Also, it might be the clutch rather than the starter. Depending on how it's been driven (maybe before you owned it?) 165k miles can take a toll on a clutch.

My version of energy storage is called "momentum".
My version of regenerative braking is called "bump starting".

1 Year Avg (Every Mile Traveled) = 47.8 mpg

BEST TANK: 2,009.6 mi on 35 gal (57.42 mpg):
