You cain't even adjust the idle on yer car anymore. goodgawd....
And, fwiu, more and more parts are chip-coded, so fewer and fewer parts can
be installed without installing the correct fukn drivers'n'shit....
Bend over, sheeple, spread, and then walk backwards.....
I'd rather have the drivability and efficiency of EFI. I don't ever
want to go back to the days when driving a flyweight deathtrap like a
VW bug mean losing speed on hills, having a 0-60 of 35 seconds, and a
top fuel economy of <22mpg. Get something with the performance of
today's ford focus, and you'd be talking fuel economy around 15mph.
Fuck that. Plus cars that had to have the points adjusted every 15K
Hey, the Beetle was a very nice 1938 car! Of course, 40+ years later
when they quit making it in Brazil or Mexico or wherever, not so much.
But its genes live on in the rear-engine Porsches, and GM even cloned
the VW/Porsche design for a few years as the Corvair. (Still pissed at
Nader for killing that- the 3rd generation one could have been fantastic.)
re: "cigarette lighter socket (does this car even have one of
They don't call them "cigarette lighter sockets" anymore.
They're called "Automotive Power Ports" or some variation of that.
Many vehicles have multiple "ports" such as additional ones in the
trunk or hatchback or backseat to power portable DVD players, cell
phone chargers, etc.
I've heard of using a battery jumper pack. Put that on the
front floor, and plug in a double ended lighter plug cord.
Maybe you or a friend has a jumper pack with a "charge the
pack from your lighter socket" cord.
The DC 13 volts should work, also.

Any auto parts store, and probably even the auto section of Walmart
sell an inexpensive device that plugs into the cigarette lighter and
is powerd by 9 volt batteries for just this purpose. Not hard to find
