Hello all,

I've noticed my Insight hits idle stop every time I stop at an intersection, even five minutes into a ride. Sometimes there's a little shudder as the engine shuts off.

This started about a week before I had a jump. There are no engine codes or lights, but it's definitely new behavior this month. Does ambient temperature play a role?

Mileage is also down this tank, by about 8mpg. I've been running a few extra urban errands, but don't usually see an effect that dramatic. Tires are fine all around.

Right, there are some days where because the ambient temperature is warmer, my engine actually auto-stops from a "cold" start. I also manage to average about 5-6mpg higher on those days for things like quick store-runs.
