comment Why wasn't my engine getting fuel?
Yes, I did. But tarnish is still worth looking at. Thanks.

comment Getting unexpectedly low mileage for Honda Fit 2012
How reliable are those dashboard MPG readouts? I measure my MPG by setting my trip meter when I fill the tank; at the next fillup, I use the power of division.

Remember that the EPA MPG rating is somewhat artificial, and so you shouldn't expect similar numbers from actual driving.

comment Why no alternate (hand-cranked, spring-loaded) starter for a car?
My old motorcycle (1978 Honda CB400T2) had kick start, electric start, and could be push-started at walking speed. I kept riding for weeks after my battery died - no big deal.

comment Stubborn oil drain plug caused by hot oil?
Adjustable wrenches put all the torque on 2 points. Socket and box wrenches put it on 6 points. They also fit better, putting the force on the ends of the flats instead of the points. Some 6 sided wrenches even have curved faces, putting the force in the middle of the flats.
