EXACTLY ...this is what I am experimenting!

The potential is that i can get the same effect as EOC while keeping the engine on...thus less wear on clutch due to no more need to bump starting, you get to keep power steering on, you get to keep full braking power on, you get to keep air conditioning on, no need to hack wires to install a kill switch.

My girlfriend approves this technique, she says
"as long as you dont have to kill switch the car, its ok with me..."
