forgot to mention: these scrap guys may be a good source of used batts.

they get used 12v truck starting batteries from a local commercial truck service center. he said the trucks usually run 4 batteries, and if one fails, the service center replaces all 4.

oh, and the scangauge showed 68.2 mpg (us) on the return trip to the scrap yard (about 8 km). i'm liking that engine kill switch.

Latest mods test: 15 mods = 15% MPG improvement: A-B test, 2007 Honda Civic 1.8L, 5-speed
Ecodriving test:
Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown: Nissan Micra 1.6L
