And Ironically, don't be surprised if you see an Electric AAA Service
Smart Car, parked next to a Gas Car on the freeway
giving the INFERNAL Combustion Car owner an emergency gallon of GAS or
a Jump-Start !! LOL

Actually back in the early 80's I do remember doing this !!

Course this was before the days of 300+ Volt Lithium Battery packs.
Just JUMPED 2 wet cell 6V batteries.
If I remember correctly, it was a very cantankerous old Diesel Truck...
I think I jumped 3 - 6V for a nominal 18V Jump Start. Did the TRICK
just fine !

Back when I had my Comuta-Car, I had some local friends and neighbors who
drove older "beater" ICEs. I used to drive the C-car round to their houses
on subzero winter mornings, giving them jumpstarts.

I don't know how much of it was the golf car batteries (much larger than an
ICE's starting battery) and how much of it was my honkin' welding cable
jumpers, but their ICEs always started almost as if it were summer.

Wish I had a pic of that little blue cheese wedge firing up a big land-yacht
Oldsmobile. Tee hee.
