Hypermiling issues: Worn out ignition switch

Well I've been hypermiling for a few months now. And just recently my ignition switch has just given out from what I believe has been my Engine Off Coasting/Idling. I drive a '95 Honda Accord DX so I'm not too surprised that it's worn out.

As an aside it seems from internet searching that the Accord ignition switch has a tendency to give out. So it could just be its time to go.

At first I was afraid that I blew out my ECU or something but if I keep the key turned slightly in the START position then my engine runs fine. But right now if it goes back to the ON position the car totally cuts off. I've already ordered a new part and will let anyone know who's interested on how the repair went.
