comment Hour meter stopped turning
One hour at 50% throttle turns the hour gauge only a half hour? I had no idea! Wow, thank you for sharing this! This raises a question though: how does the hour meter know what my RPM range is? E.g. this engine idles at 300 rpm and the governor limits the high end at 2300 rpm. Do I have to calibrate it?

comment Can an engine stop from a bad battery?
This is my understanding as well, but I thought that perhaps I might have an overly simplified understanding of the process. Thanks for confirming that it's correct. Offhand, do you know how much power it takes to keep the engine running once started? I mean, leaving off things like the headlights, stereo, etc., what does it take to keep the sparkplugs sparking, fuel pump pumping, etc.

Good to know! Out of curiosity, what is being safeguarded here, what is cutting the engine (is it the ignition timing circuit?), and how does cutting the engine safeguard whatever it is? THANKS!

Good point. Although all Corollas have petrol fueled engines, afaik, I'll update the post with information on the Corolla's engine.

I think that the OP is trying to find the values for full and empty perhaps.
