Well, that's strange

So, I've been driving my sister's Civic for the last 2 months while she's been away. (It gets better gas mileage than my van...). A few weeks ago, it suddenly had trouble starting - it coughed to life, but slowly. Then it got better, and then it started happening again.

So, we took it in for service. It turns out that there is absolutely nothing wrong - I just have to keep it filled up. Apparently, if an old-model Civic is below a quarter tank of gas, then it's basically starting on fumes. Very random.

Beeerrrwickkk!!!!!!!! Don't you go around killing my car. And you thought I was silly for filling it at half tank all the time. ;P
